Indian Mounds were once scattered throughout the entire region that is now known as Lexington, KY. No one is quite sure of the origins of those who built the Mounds. They preceded the more kwown Native American tribes. Modern researchers have simply called them the Mound Builders. Other relics found in the Mounds have connections to Egyptian embalming techniques. Early settlers found altars, catacombs and mummies deep in the caves beneath Lexington. This is little known information found buried in old books at the Univerity of KY and Transy reference rooms.
The downtown area of Lexington held a concentration of these Mounds. Mounds still remaining around the area have what mystics call "portal energy". The energy is now being manipulated by the continued development of the Bluegrass area and the demolition of the city's oldest area.
