In this installment of “Short & Sweet,” I will be sharing photographs and other information viewers have gathered along the way and sent to me in their explorations and research of places close to where they live.
MF in Missouri sent me this nugget of information about Victorian homes on the real estate market, and said the following:
“Years of shopping for Victorian real estate sealed the deal for me regarding a previous civilization. Here is just one example.”
I myself can’t help but notice the mud-flood-type slant that is going on in these photos of different views around this Victorian home in Arkansas.
She also said to “Note the basement.”
Also, the red arrows on the right are pointing toward the downward slant of the brick wall of the house where it meets the slanted walkway, as well as the irregular brick-work shown here; and the red arrow on the left points to what looks like an older stone wall that is part of the house’s construction too.
…that “Often the remaining Victorian houses have 3, 6 or 9 gematria addresses…”
…and that “Many have the shallow ‘fireplace dog ‘ fireplaces.”
It is interesting to note that “fireplace dog” is another word for “andiron,” which is defined as one of a pair of bracket supports on which logs are laid for burning in an open fireplace, allowing air to circulate under the firewood for better burning and less smoke.”
So here are some examples of andirons out there, starting with “American Iron Firedogs” dated from between 1770 and 1800, and look to be of a more utilitarian design for fireplace use…
…but there are more elaborate and beautiful andirons, like these English brass and enamel andirons circa 1680…
…and this set of andirons, shown with logs, in a main dining room at the palace of Versailles outside of Paris, France.
Quite ornate to be designed specifically to hold logs burning in a fireplace!
Next, PH recently visited Keowee-Toxaway State Park in South Carolina and sent me video footage and photos he took during his visit.
Keowee-Toxaway State Park on Lake Keowee was created from lands previously owned by Duke Power, and all part of the historical lands of the Cherokee, which is today in the northwest corner of South Carolina near the state’s border with northeast Georgia and southwest North Carolina.
Lake Keowee is a man-made reservoir formed in 1971, that we are told was constructed for the needs of Duke Energy, which it uses for things like cooling three nuclear reactors at the Oconee Nuclear Generating Station, and for public recreational purposes.
The historic Cherokee Keowee Town had been located on the bank of the Keowee River and was part of what was known as the Lower Town Regions, all of which were inundated by the formation of Lake Keowee, its artifacts and history lost.
Were they hiding evidence of something they didn’t want us to know about in the process of creating these man-made lakes?
PH sent me these photos he took himself at the park, like this one atthe top of the land bridge at the park, what is referred to as the “Natural Bridge…”
…where he also said there was a nearby golf course, and it was striking to him how close the bridge was located to Route 11.
He also took photos he took of the area surrounding the bridge.
Who were the Cherokee, really?
Were they the hunter-gatherers we have been taught to believe in the historical narrative we have been given?
Or were they, and the other indigenous peoples in the Americas and around the world, actually the builders of what we know as civilization, dating back to ancient Mu, or LeMuria, to relatively modern times, and the European colonizers actually stole their legacy, subsequently claimed it for themselves, and then proceeded to banish the Master Builders of this ancient, advanced Mu’urish civilization to primitive status in the minds of the Collective Human Consciousness for eternity?
This is something for us to seriously consider moving forward in our understanding of what has taken place here and to not blindly accept everything we have been told.
I personally don’t think there was a mysterious “other” civilization, or aliens, that built everything, though if the History Channelprogram “Ancient Aliens,” which I appreciate gets these subjects out to the light-of-day on mainstream television, had been called “Ancient Humans,” it probably would not have lasted one season, much less 17 seasons…
…and how about we don’t have to look any further than the people who were already here to find the builders of it.
The Cherokee were even considered one of the “Five Civilized Tribes” by the European Colonizers, along with the Chicksaw, Chocktaw Creek and Seminole…
…who proceeded to have the majority of them removed from the land after signing treaties with the U. S. Government which had them cede their traditional land, after President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act in 1830, leading to the infamous Cherokee Trail of Tears and those of the other affected tribes.
I was searching for images of “Cherokee,” and saw this image of a tapestry blanket for the city of Murphy, North Carolina, which is the seat of Cherokee County, which is described as long having been part of Cherokee homelands.
The Cherokee County Courthouse depicted in the center of the tapestry…
…was said to have been built in 1926 in the Classical Revival-style of architecture.
I wonder why they took down the topmost section of the courthouse’s cupola, which was seen in an earlier photo of it, but not one that was taken more recently.
I know there are many more examples of missing building parts like this, but here’s another example for the purposes of comparison of the same thing.
Today this building is the home of the the “Prescott Center for the Performing Arts” in Prescott, Arizona.
Once upon a time, we are told in our historical narrative, this building was the “Sacred Heart Catholic Church and Rectory,” built here starting in 1891, and the first services held on February 17th of 1895.
According to this plaque at the front of the building, the church had a steeple that was 115-feet, or 35-meters, tall, but that it was removed in 1930, after being struck by lightening several times.
Also notice the older, larger stone-work in contrast with the brick-work., like we saw back at the Victorian home in Arkansas at the beginning of this post.
Also interesting to note that, like the Victorian home example in Arkansas, there is a mud-flood-type slant going on around this building in Prescott…
…as well as building features below the ground-level of the building, but not necessarily the street-level.
Still in historical Cherokee territory, EJ took a road trip with two of her friends to see if they could find an actual “fort” at Fort Mountain State Park in Georgia, and she sent me photos from their trip to the Fort Mountain State Park outside of Chatsworth, Georgia…
…which happens to be only 103-miles, or 166-kilometers, from Keowee-Toxaway State Park in South Carolina.
She said there were lots of large boulders strewn about, and that it kind of looked like most of them had just been bulldozed into a pile ( just her impression).
She found one that had a straight cut through it that didn’t look natural, with her foot on it in the picture on the right for size comparison.
She said the 885-foot, or 270-meter, zig zagging stone wall, looked more to her like loose rocks dumped there than a wall.
So, the explanation put out to the general public who visit Fort Mountain State Park is that the mysterious wall, and other built structures that can’t be explained in the current historical narrative, were built, according to a legend of the Cherokee themselves, by the “Moon-Eyed People.”
Posted information like this doesn’t change my mind that we don’t have any further to look than the original people of the land for the explanation of who built everything here, and that the information on this plaque serves as disinformation and misdirection to support the official historical narrative that the Native American tribes were primitive, so therefore someone else must have been responsible for the stone structures, however, they are the stuff of legend, and we really don’t know who they were or anything about them.
EJ also sent me photos of the stone fire watch tower there, which was said to have been built in the 1930s during the Great Depression by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
There was a fire at the stone fire watch tower in 1971, which destroyed the cupola at the top…
…but there was a major restoration project between 2014 and 2015 that restored the stone fire watch tower on Fort Mountain to its original appearance.
EJ observed while she was there that the stone tower really isn’t tall enough to be an effective fire tower considering the trees are taller then the tower.
This stone fire watch tower is known for the heart-shaped rock found on one side of it.
The story goes that a young stone mason in the CCC, Arthur Bailey, led the team while missing his sweetheart back home, and to show his love for her, he carved a heart-shaped stone for the tower.
Seeing this stone in the tower got me thinking about other heart shapes that I have seen in the world, like what is called the “Heart of Voh,” in the heart of a mangrove forest in New Caledonia, which is a French territory comprised of dozens of islands in the South Pacific…
…the Heart of Corsica, also known as the Two Lovers, said to be in a natural rock formation in the Regional National Park of Corsica….
…Heart Lake, in the northern part of Brampton, Ontario, Canada…
…and this heart-shape in one of Cappadocia’s caves in Turkey.
All of these perfect-heart shapes make me wonder firstly, exactly how long this shape has been associated with love, and secondly, if the Ancients were encoding the emotion of love directly into landscape and architecture of Earth.
I am quite certain the Old World was based on the frequency of love, and not on the fear we have been conditioned with in the false construct of the New World.
Next, SV sent me quite a bit of information about where she lives in the Kensington District of London, England.
In the first series of information she sent me, she highlights where she lives in South Kensington.
She said that in the older buildings in London, and all over Europe for that matter, it is common to have “mud-scrapers” on both sides of the doors of entrances to remove mud from the soles of shoes.
This is the view of the back of the building she lives in from her terrace on the left, and on the right is a view of the garden of her downstairs neighbor on the basement-level.
In this video she sent me, SV is going on a “Mud-Flood Walk-About” around her neighborhood, showing us the buildings and basements of Wetherby Gardens and excavated mud-flooded levels throughout her walk, including: Ashburn Place; Harrington Gardens; Colbeck Mews; and St. Jude’s Church/Millitus College, which still shows the basement level; and the side-view of St. Jude’s from Courtfield Gardens, and other views going around the block there.
Here are a few points of additional information that I have pulled from the video she took.
The term “Victorian architecture” is used to refer to a number of different architectural-styles that we are told emerged between 1830 and 1910, during the reign of Queen Victoria.
Here is a comparison from two windows in London that she showed us in the video on the left, with the same shape of the window in one of the rooms of the Victorian house seen earlier on the right in Arkansas.
We accept the explanation that these two windows in very different places would be the same design because they came from this same time period because, well, that is the only reason we have ever been given.
It is interesting to note that on her walk, SV’s video camera picked up magnetic patterns on the bricks of several of the buildings she passed by, and these were right next to St. Jude’s Church in Kensington’s Courtfield Gardens.
Then there is this side-picture from the street on the other side of the garden’s wall of St. Jude’s Church showing windows which just happen to resemble atomic wave-form patterns.
Lastly for this post, MB in Maryland sent me information to look into the story we are given about a big quarry at the C & O Canal and Seneca Creek, and stone-cutting mill located there.
These locations MB speaks of are in Montgomery County, Maryland, where I grew up.
I graduated from Wootton High School in Rockville, and MB graduated from Seneca Valley High School in Germantown, and while I don’t know the Seneca/Germantown area well, I do know it.
These are some old stomping grounds of mine, so to speak, for a variety reasons, when I was growing up.
I moved away from the area permanently when I got married in 1989.
MB visits the Seneca Creek Stone-Cutting Mill often, and said he has been suspicious for decades of the whole story.
It was said to have been built in 1868, and used to cut stone for Baltimore and Washington, DC, until 1901.
We are told the “brownstone” for Smithsonian castle, also known as “Seneca Red Sandstone,” and numerous buildings and canal locks in the area, came from…
… a big stone quarry at the C&O Canal and Seneca Creek that started operating somewhere around 1781.
This is listed as an 1898 photograph of the quarry.
Nowadays, the location designated as the former quarry is overgrown with sycamore trees, poplars, and dense brush, and is impenetrable most of the year.
The Seneca Creek Aqueduct is near the location of the quarry and mill, and was said to have been built between 1829 and 1832 out of the Seneca Red Sandstone of the quarry–almost 40-years before the Stone Cutting Mill was said to have opened.
MB said the big problem is there’s no big hole — nothing that could fit the Smithsonian Castle plus the myriad other structures supposedly supplied from the Seneca Quarry.
Excepting a “turn-around basin” that may be natural in the canal, he can find zero trace of any quarry at all in fact.
He indicated there are small-gauge railroad tracks laid down, leaving the stone cutting mill from approximately from its SW corner…but says then they then disappear, and MB has recently has been looking at the ruins here from ‘mudflood’ perspective.
I am going to end here, and in the next “Short & Sweet” installment, I will continue to share photographs and videos viewers have shared with me, and the information they have gathered, in their journeys and explorations close to where they live, as well as continuing to look at places viewers have suggested.
