The Curious Land Formations at Marietta – The First Accounts
Many of those arriving at Marietta took little notice to the unusual earthen formations. However, for others the curious nature of these creations caused them to describe them to friends, scholars and periodicals wakening national attention to the ancient formation. Many made drawing including accurate surveys. Others attempted to guess their age using the rings of falllen trees. Some even attempted excavations to discover what might lie within.
Join us in hearing their words, seeing their maps and maybe experiencing the excitement they experienced!
