Developers, historians at odds about remnants of Great Hopewell Road
Plans for an extension of James Parkway to Kaiser Drive are under way, but national magazine coverage has stirred up tension between developers and an archaeologist.

Bradley Lepper, of the Ohio Historical Society, said the remnants of a 2,000-year-old road might be present on two 300-acre sites.

"It may be the only remnants of what I call the Great Hopewell Road," he said.
