Back a few years ago some university art students painted Egyptian art murals on the pillars of the old copper plant which was massive and ran down the entire hillside. Witches Circle is truly a prominent landmark in the region and can be seen across the valley or from afar. Sadly others have tried to vandalize the circle but one can tell others may have taken it to far to perform rituals here possibly in the past while others just came to deface it by writing over them. The circle has a wide range of art and in retrospect you almost feel as if your walking through some temple in Egypt. Its about as close as I can get so ill take it! I also heard rumors of two statues one was burned the other was put up on a hill to watch over the town site and circle. I did not see the Ludwig Watcher but I read about it and found this mill to be massive. This mill served the town as its castle which kept the town alive especially after it was smelted then in later years the Douglas-Nevada Mining Company took the reigns in 1907 perfecting the art of smelting which prior to that was not perfected till this mill was upgraded. The smelted copper then could be exported to Carson City and then other spurs to be used throughout the country.
