"Some ancient works, probably belonging to the same system with those of the Mississippi Valley, and erected by the same people, occur on the Susquehanna River as far down as the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania." Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley: Squier and Davis

Watch a presentation I did on the hill in 2013.

Spanish Hill, a 230 feet high, flat-topped glacial moraine located in South Waverly, PA once had earthen embankments with an interior ditch around it's top which were plowed away by the end of the Civil War.

The hill continues to keep itself draped in mystery for all to wonder just who built the huge enclosure on it's top centuries ago and what happened there...and I hope that this site makes you consider these things as you read through the pages.

This website is dedicated to the continued research of this site that has captured the imagination of locals for centuries and about the people who have preserved the information that we have today and effected our understanding of it.



 "Of many points of historic interest in our valley, perhaps none has attracted more attention or roused more speculation, from the earliest times to the present, than the mound called Spanish Hill.  This prominence is due not only to its unusual position (isolated from the hill ranges and regions), but also to its odd outline, the remains of fortifications on the top, and its present name." - ~Louise Welles Murray -"History of Old Tioga Point and Early Athens -"1908.
