Established in 1810 as the seat of Pickaway County, Circleville, Ohio derives its name from the circular portion of a large Hopewell era earthwork upon which the town was built. The town was platted directly on top of the earthworks, integrating the town plan into the prehistoric landscape, with an octagonal courthouse in the center. In the mid 1830s, the town began a project to convert the town plan to a conventional grid.
