The Crescent Hotel, 1886: Eureka Springs, AR

  • 1,362
  • 8
I've been to a lot of places in the US, and Eureka Springs is up there with the most memorable city I've ever visited (Savannah, GA is a close second). It is a sleepy town near the border of Missouri basically built right up alongside the Ozark Mountains. The entire city more or less is listed...

Polar Freezers and the Global Warming

  • 5,829
  • 42
I intend to offer a hypothesis that we have two humongous freezers installed within North and South polar regions. In my opinion, they could have been installed by the previous society to free the Earth of the Great Biblical Flood waters. This thread requires the reader to know contents of the...

  • 1,988
  • 19
The Sutro Baths was a large, privately owned public saltwater swimming pool complex in western San Francisco, California. Built in 1896, it burned down in June 1966 and is now in ruins. On March 14, 1896, the Sutro Baths were opened to the public as the world's largest indoor swimming pool...

The Mormon Temple and Tabernacle in Utah

  • 3,136
  • 32
This is one building I hadn't thought to take a look at, but there certainly are some very strange things going on here. Lots of lies, cover-ups, and bullshit history, as usual. It's undeniably a gorgeous building, and if you didn't know what it was, you'd swear it was a European...

1200s Old London Bridge: what do we know?

  • 2,012
  • 6
After the murder of his erstwhile friend and later opponent Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, the penitent King Henry II commissioned a new stone bridge in place of the old, with a chapel at its center dedicated to Becket. Building work began in 1176, supervised by Peter of Colechurch. It...

USA: Transported Medieval Castles, Monasteries and other buildings

  • 2,301
  • 17
Allegedly, in the early 1900s, America was so infatuated with the Medieval architecture, it had tens of castles, churches and monasteries moved from Europe to the United States. While the motivations behind moving buildings across the Atlantic Ocean may vary, one thing is certain, this is not...

The Missippian civilization existed from roughly 800 AD to 1600 AD, and flourished from the southern shores of the Great Lakes at Western New York and Western Pennsylvania in what is now the Eastern Midwest, extending south-southwest into the lower Mississippi Valley and wrapping easterly around...

The Williamson Tunnels, Liverpool, UK.

  • 2,427
  • 32
Could it be, that these (and many more tunnels were already in existence, were discovered and simply dug out, perhaps when laying railways? Further, could Joseph Williamson be another one of these dubious historical fugues, perhaps from the imagination of Stonehouse? Or are they both fabricated...

Fabricated years and Holy Roman Empire historical forgery

  • 2,117
  • 10
What if I told you that story about HRM is potentially one of the biggest forgeries ever pulled out and that Voltaires joke was literally a fact? Let's start with Claudius Ptolemy book Geography and his world map from 2nd century. Historians claim that his map was a known world in Hellenistic...

Curiousities in the city of Baltimore

  • 2,178
  • 15
I initially got attracted to this topic after a re-watch of the greatest television show ever made: The Wire. For those that don't know, it is a show just as much about the character drama of the drug war in Baltimore as it is the City of Baltimore itself. I happened to catch a sight of the...

The Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is a large unfinished Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (originally Francisco de Paula del Villar was commissioned for the job, but he quit). Gaudí's work on the building is part of a UNESCO World...

1878 Panorama of San Francisco from California Street Hill

  • 9,845
  • 101
This city is not 100% abandoned. Its population in 1880 was supposed to be 234 thousand people. This high quality of image allowed me to spot like may be 50 people, and about as many horse buggies. Yet, when you fully comprehend the size of this "30 y.o." city, 234k will sound unreasonable. It...

1780: A Day of Darkness

  • 3,343
  • 41
Such an unusual, thick darkness ignited religious fears and people huddled with lit candles in churches fearing the day of judgment was upon them. Nature, too, shared the fear and confusion and animals responded accordingly. The occurrence brought intense alarm and distress to multitudes of...

Cynocephali: The Dog-Headed Men

  • 2,803
  • 16
As bizarre and fantastical as it sounds to our modern ears, there is a long history of recorded accounts of a race of creatures known as the dog-headed men. Everyone is probably familiar with the Egyptian depiction of Anubis, the jackal or dog-headed deity. Anubis is a Greek translation of the...

Who Was Junius?

  • 541
  • 0
The seditious writers, knowing the penalty for their actions, wrote under assumed names: Atticus, Lucius, and most notoriously, Junius as well as others. These 3 argued amongst themselves as much as they warned of doomsday predictions should the situation not be speedily ameliorated. King George...

1898 and 1899: Trans-Mississippi and Greater America Expositions in Omaha

  • 1,886
  • 11
Here we have another one of those Expos allegedly made out of horse hair and plaster. I suggest we look into this Expo, analyze available construction photographs, the crowds, the exhibits, etc. May be, in the process, we could develop some sort of an opinion on what this next "build to destroy"...

Timur, historically known as Amir Timur and Tamerlane, was a Turco-Mongol conqueror. As the founder of the Timurid Empire in Persia and Central Asia, he became the first ruler in the Timurid dynasty. According to John Joseph Saunders, Timur was "the product of an islamized and iranized society"...

Patent Law Enforcement in the Past

  • 1,018
  • 12
What kind of society did they really have to allow for proper enforcement of the Patent Law? From my “narrative compliant” understanding of those times, I cannot imagine any patent enforcement being anywhere on the list of priorities back than. Yet, it had to be, according to the above wiki...

Tartarian Language and Alphabet

May be at some point we will be able to locate the Tartarian alphabet, and examples of their writing. I do not mean the Tatar Language mentioned on wikipedia. The language I'm talking about does appear to be omitted from the narrative compliant history.
