New York's Serpent Mound
Daily Gazette from Ft. Wayne Indiana, May 1, 1885
The Mound Builders, Many Evidences of a First Race In and About Randolph.
Near the station of the New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio railroad is a peculiar earth formation, which was designed by those who fashioned it thousands of years ago to represent a serpent, according to the conclusion of those who have read the customs of the mound-builders by the monuments they left. This particular formation is 425 feet long, and enthusiastic antiquaries who visit it are unanimous in the resemblance it presents to a snake basking in the sunshine.”Giant human skeletons have been found in burial mounds around the Serpent.
