Kenimer Site, (Mound Complex) Georgia



Private—located in Sautee, GA in White County

The Kenimer Site is found on a steep hill just 1.5 miles from the famous Nacoochee Mound. There are two mounds on the hill. The largest is an irregular shaped pyramid, 35-feet high erected at the hill’s summit. The other mound, rectangular and just 3-feet high, is adjacent to the larger mound. A December article posted by the “Examiner” relates that it was recently discovered to be an 1,100-year old Mayan “ruins” site. Somewhat to the south in Georgia is Ocmulgee, which is clearly related to the Mexican Teotihuacan pyramid culture near Mexico City. That culture collapsed around A.D. 600 and Mexican pyramid-builders migrated north into Louisiana, Texas, and eventually other states bringing what we today call the Mississippian culture. At Kenimer there are (possibly) several stone terraces, mainly buried, and a lot of pottery has been excavated over the years. The date of the pottery is similar to the dates of the Maya collapse and the “terraces” bear a slight resemblance to construction in Mexico. Thus the tentative link to “Maya” influences. However it is unknown if the hill actually has sculptured terraces of not.
