In The Region:

A 2,000 year old pipe from the ancient Adena culture is now the state’s official artifact. Gov. John Kasich signed legislation to that effect Wednesday, alongside a case holding the pipe in front of dozens of students from the Columbus School for Girls.

“Now they told me that they had finally figured out how old this is – 10 A.D.," Kasich said. "So over 2,000 years old. It’s perfect isn’t it?”

The prehistoric effigy pipe was linked to the ancient Adena culture and was found in 1901 in a burial mound near Chillicothe. Fourth graders at the Columbus School for Girls had proposed the Adena pipe to be made the state’s official artifact beginning in 2009. Other classes at CSG joined the push for the bill over the years as they studied Ohio’s political system. They told lawmakers they learned the legislative process requires patience and persistence and that sometimes people speak at hearings for longer than their allotted time.
