Owners of Eleanor Dare Site invite Richard Thornton to study it
A lifelong resident of the Nacoochee Valley informed me this morning that he remembers the Maya ballcourt in Sautee, GA, but also remembers seeing stone wall terraces and the ruins of stone walls with window slots on the slopes leading up to the Kenimer Mound in the Nacoochee Valley. Both he and a long time subscriber of POOF, Silvia Wilson, remember seeing the ruins of a stone temple on top of the Kenimer Mound. During the 1970s, a newcomer to the Valley knocked over the temple walls and hauled the stones to his lot, where he used them to build a foundation and chimneys. This gentleman also confirmed, what archaeologist Robert Wauchope suspected. The Chattahoochee River originally flowed on the north side on the north side of the valley, not the south side like today. A torrential rain storm changed its channel in 1886 . . . and also allowed steamboats to paddle around Downtown Rome, GA.
The forthcoming architectural study will be documented by the first true video film on our People of One Fire Youtube Channel. Things are changing!
