The so-called turtle and panther mounds are long-tailed forms that comprise the second largest class of effigy mounds. The long-tailed mounds were representative of water spirits usually found
in areas with large lakes, swamps and marshes and typically were located near springs. These springs flow from the earth and have been revered by ancient people as a source of life-giving
water, symbolic of rebirth and renewal. Springs also represented entrances to the water underworld for the powerful water spirits.
The Nitschke Mounds are located less than 2 miles from the Horicon Marsh and the site has 2 continuously flowing springs.
The largest mound in the group is a Turtle Effigy that measures 200' in length by 57' in width and 4' in height.
Below are the various effigy mounds found near the site

Buffalo effigies, also found around the Horicon Marsh, are rocks naturally shaped like a buffalo. Some of the rocks have been changed only slightly by Native Americans and may date back to over
5,000 years ago.
Prehistoric shrines with bison effigies are found on hilltops because the people believed that high ground was a reflection of heaven. Located on high points, all key sites are mutually visible. The
effigies all face a cardinal direction or are aligned with a solstice sunrise or sunset.
Native Americans marked the sun's movement because they believed the sun represented the physical presence of God in the sky. Fires represented the presence of God on earth. Their circle of
worship includes naturally occurring, interrelated cycles: prairie, fire, the sun, and buffalos. Buffalo effigies also helped orient people to other geographic destinations, possibly all the way to the
Black Hills of South Dakota.
A "herd" of these bison are scattered throughout Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties. Like the mounds, they are still visited by Native Americans today.

|“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“ Frank

|"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
