The Mystery Spot
HISTORY OF THE MYSTERY SPOT
wanted to get the level ground below here for
a summer home or mountain cabin, but the
gentleman we were buying it from would not
sell the level ground unless we purchased a
strip across the entire south end of his
property, including this hillside.
bought the entire piece, mainly to get the
level ground, and as we were helping the
surveyor along the north line, we noted the
compass to vary a small amount on the transit
and spoke to him about it at that time. He
said we might get that variation along a
barbed wire fence or some mineral in the
ground and let it pass at that.
On thinking it
over later, there was no barbed wire fence
near where we were at the time, and as far as
we knew, no excessive mineral in this ground;
so we took our own small hand compass and went
up over the north line to try and check on it.
The variation there was not great enough that
we could tell anything about it with the point
of the hill and through the brush.
we came down the little canyon or draw above
here. In doing so we felt very light headed or
top heavy, felt like something trying to force
us right off the hill. We sat down for a while
to try and overcome that feeling. While
sitting there we happened to look at the
compass again. There, the compass had varied
enough that we needed nothing to compare it
with to tell that it was not correct.
We began to
check from that, and we found the more we
checked the more we found, until we found we
had this spot of ground here. About one
hundred fifty feet in diameter, that so far,
we have not found any instrument absolutely
correct over. A portable radio will play any
place over it, but with very little variation,
being the nearest correct that we have found".
