Giants in Ohio: The Hidden History of the Human Race!

with 43 comments


I found a unique treasure at the 2009 Mothman Festival at Point Pleasant in, West Virginia while on a trip with my wife. It’s a map of paranormal activity in the State of Ohio called Hidden Ohio. It features Ancient American sites, haunted locations, sacred geography, scenic byways, strange creatures, unexplained mysteries, and unique sites.

It was on this map that I noticed two sites where giant human beings were discovered. One location was just outside of Cleveland, and the other was just south of Cincinnati. The below picture I don’t believe is real, but it gives you an idea. I am currently looking for the private citizens that have these discovered bones. In both cases the bones of the giant humans were 8 to 10 feet tall. Prior to seeing those excavation sites on that map, I had never heard of giant humans in an actual historical sense.

Below is a history of the giant bones discovered in North America. Some of the bones are without question stuck in drawers at museums. But most are in the hands of private collectors. I would love to see them for myself.

Historical North American Giants

1792 New York, Buffalo: Turner’s History of the Holland Purchase reports that 7 and 8 foot skeletons were found at an earthen fort in Orleans county with broad flat topped skulls.

1800 Ohio, Conneaut: Among the normal size skeletons found in the remains of mounds were found gigantic bones. Some of the skulls and jaws were large enough to fit over the head and face of a normal man

1821 Tennessee, White County: An ancient fortification contained skeletons of gigantic stature averaging at least 7 feet in length.

1825 Ohio Valley: David Cusick, a Tuscorora by birth, wrote that among the legends of the ancient people of the stock, there was a powerful tribe called Ronnongwetowanca. They were giants, and had a “considerable habitation.” When the Great Spirit made the people, some of them became giants. After a time, and having endured the outrages of these giants, it is said that the people banded together, and through the final force of about 800 warriors, successfully annihilated the abhorrent Ronnongwetowanca. After that, it was said that there were no giants anywhere. This was supposed to have happened around 2,500 winters before Columbus discovered America, around 1000 BC.

1829 Ohio, Chesterville: In digging away a mound where a hotel was to be built, a large human skeleton was found, but no measurements were made. It is related that the jawbone was found to fit easily over that of a citizen of the village. The local physicians examined the cranium and found it proportionately large, with more teeth than the white race of today. The skeleton was taken to Mansfield, and has been lost sight of entirely.

1833 California, Lompock Rancho: Soldiers digging at Giant Lompock Rancho, California, discovered a male skeleton 12 feet tall. Carved shells, stone axes, and other artifacts surrounded the skeleton. The skeleton had double rows of upper and lower teeth. Unfortunately, this body was secretly buried when local Indians became upset about the remains.

1835 Illinois, Lake County: In the numerous mounds in the county, skeletons ranging between 7 and 8 feet are discovered.

1845 Virginia: A human jaw bone of great size was uncovered in a burial mound on which the teeth stood transversely in the jawbone.

1849 New York: From “Illustrations of the Ancient Monuments of Western New York” comes the report that an elliptical mound above near the Conewango Valley held eight big skeletons. A thigh bone was found to be 28” long. Exquisite stone points, enamelwork, and jewelry were found. Also discovered in the area were a number of other large skeletons one almost 9 feet in height.

1850 New York: From the History of Allegany County in 1879 a report that very large human bones were uncovered during excavation for the railroad

1851 New York: A skull rib bone, and shinbone were found that indicated the height to be over 8 feet tall.

1856 West Virginia, Wheeling: A human skeleton was discovered by labourers while ploughing a vineyard measuring almost 11 feet tall.

1858 Ohio, Vermillion Township: Skeletons of a race of beings much larger than the local inhabitants were discovered.

1870 Ohio: In Brush Creek Township a large mound contained skeltal remains of several humans up to nine feet tall. A large stone tablet with unknown insriptions similiar to Greek writing was also found.

1872 Ohio, Seneca Township: When the “Bates” mound was opened the remains of three skeletons, whose size would indicate they measured in life, at least, eight feet in height, were found. A remarkable feature of these remains was they had double teeth in front as well as in back of mouth and in both upper and lower jaws.

1873 Ohio, Seville: An Ohio Bicentennial Commission historical marker serves as a reminder that the Giants of Seville, Captain Martin Van Buren Bates and his wife, Anna Swan Bates, lived in the village of Seville in Medina County. Anna stood 7 feet 11 1/2 inches tall and weighed 413 pounds. Martin was 7 feet 9 inches tall and weighed 480 pounds.

1873 Washington DC: “The objects here collected which have not been given, or acquired by exchange, have been purchased for the use of the museum by order of the surgeon-general… There is a skeleton of a giant, who, in life, measured seven feet, prepared by Auzoux and mounted by Blanchêne’s method, which, if I may use that term, is really a beauty. It is as white and clean as new fallen snow, and the brass joints and screws which keep it together are bright, and of the latest style and finish.” From the article “The Army Medical Museum in Washington” by Louis Bagger, Appletons’ Journal: A Magazine Of General LiteratureVolume 9, Issue 206

1875 West Virginia, Rivesville: Workmen constructing a bridge near the mouth of Paw Paw Creek uncovered three giant skeletons with strands of reddish hair clinging to the skulls. The skeletons had supported people approximately 8 feet tall.

1876 Wisconsin: Mounds were excavated containing a giant skull and vertebrae.

1877 Missouri, Kansas City: A giant skull was unearthed when mounds wore opened and giant man tracks belonging to humans 25 to 30 feet tall were discovered.

1877 Nevada, Eureka: Prospectors found a human leg bone and kneecap sticking out of solid rock. Doctors examined the remains and determined they were from a human being, and one that stood over 12 feet tall. The rock in which the bones were found was dated geologically to the Jurassic Period, over 185 million years old.

1878 Ohio, Ashtabula County: While excavating the ground for graves, bones were exhumed, which seemed to have belonged to a race of giants. A skull and jaw were found, which were of such size that the skull would fit easily over a large man’s head like a loose fitting helmet, even with the jaw in place. The number of these graves has been estimated to be between two and three thousand.

1879 Indiana, Brewersville: A skeleton almost ten feet tall was excavated from a mound.

1880 Ohio, Zanesville: A skeleton was reported to have been of enormous dimensions found in a clay coffin, with a sandstone slab containing hieroglyphics.

1880 Minnesota, Clearwater: Several giant skeletons were found with double rows of teeth.

1881 Ohio, Medina County: A jawbone of great size belonging to a human being was discovered, which contained eight jaw-teeth in each side, of enormous size; and the teeth stood transversely in the jawbone. It would pass over any man’s face with entire ease.

Why don’t we learn about this in school? That’s another story that I’ve covered elsewhere.

  1. There have been a number of seven foot to eight foot giants among the early Indian tribes and prehistoric Americans. Some of the Indians say that people in the past were much bigger than today and hunted giant bear, giant dear, and giant buffalo in the past.

    I think the very biggest giants ever found in America were never over 10 or 12 feet, and that is only the very largest possible ones.

    • “1856 West Virginia, Wheeling:… ploughing a vineyard measuring almost 11 feet tall”. Sure I’ve seen taller vineyards than that!

  8. This is just a fake picture, its confirmed now, i don’t know why the people are running behind this sort of stuff, it look interesting but its proved that human was never taller then the currently occurring human beings on the earth, so whats the point in making all this discussion. Some extraordinary tall people do occur in this age but they are also considered in 99 % case abnormal. According to square cube law human body could not exist if its extraordinary larger.

    • I know this is not true. The Giants existed. And the people who are trying to prove they didnt i’m sure are the same ones who are covering it up. I’ve traveled the world and have seen these giants in different countries. the caves, their armor, weapons, skeletons. It was thousands of these beings. America does a good job of keep its civilians ignorant and drugged up on sports and sex.


      August 4, 2012 at 5:28 pm

      • You are right about the sports and sex. You’d have to be blind not to see the evidence–but many people are walking around with their eyes shut.


        August 4, 2012 at 6:30 pm

      • And yet you provide ZERO evidence that you have seen these skeletons, weapons, armor, ect. Saying you have seen something but providing zero evidence yourself or by any other means is not something you can expect others to even begin to believe without anything to back that up. And in what way is asking for proof trying to cover it up? You can’t cover up something when no evidence of that something exists. Id love to believe that giants existed but Ill only believe based on evidence of their existence, not because some anonymous person on the internet claims to have seen something but couldn’t bother to get a picture or other form of evidence of it. So don’t make foolish claims of covering up something that has yet to be proven. And really drugged up on sports and sex is somehow keeping people ignorant to giants existing? How in any reality does that even begin to make sense?

  10. [...] Keel’s explanation of ultraterrestials in The Mothman Prophecies offered a whole host of explanations that are scientific in nature toward the true nature of “demons” voodoo magic and even good luck angels. During Keel’s investigations chronicled with great diligence in The Mothman Prophecies it appears the government is very much aware of these ultraterrestrials and actually has a relationship with them. This relationship has been articulated in fun films like The Men in Black and in Point Pleasant, West Virginia every September during the Mothman Festival, where the whole town gets together to celebrate the mysterious occurrences that terrorized that town in the late 1960’s. But the actual relationship is quite serious if examined at face value. After all, we think we are dealing with a reality that contains all the elements of our known visual… [...]

  11. I realize that this rather an old post, but I thought I’d add to the discussion with a little “Bible Talk”. —Genesis 6 1-2, 4 (KJV) “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”— Now, the word ‘giants’ used here is actually Nephilim in Hebrew, from the root naphal which means to fall; it does not actually mean giant but for this purpose that is almost irrelevant. The Nephilim were giants, ‘mighty men’. If you believe the Bible then realize that it tells us that giants did indeed exist. If anyone was interested in learning more about this subject they should check out Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman’s “Alien Encounters” (it’s available on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=mo0QAHRsYrQ)

    • You are right. There is something to that, and the odd proof is everywhere. This is an old post, but it sees 40 to 50 views everyday all by itself, so there are a lot of people out there who are curious about this type of discovery. I had never heard of actual bones discovered until I saw that map of Ohio talked about in the article. Thanks for the link. I’m sure people will enjoy that!


      November 27, 2011 at 1:40 pm

  12. Many of the bones found in the 1800′s were re-buried out of respect for the dead. There is a book out called “Smithsoneon Gate” about the cover-up of many bones in the Smithsonean museums because the existence of giants supports the Biblical model and not the evolutionary model. See also Kent Hovind’s film series at http://www.drdino.com. He revealed the location of some of the bones. Also, Ron Wyatt, a Biblical archeologist, had taken some of the most accurate photos comparing finger bones of a giant with those of regular people.


    February 23, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    • Thank you!!! I have had over 20,000 views of that article and you are the first response to give me some reasorce information. I will check that out!


      February 23, 2012 at 3:10 pm

  13. This is all a scam, the picture here was digitally edited for a contest, along with a lot of others around on the web showing the bones or skulls of ‘giants’. Unless that guy is a midget, then these bones are from a guy 24′ tall.

    If you want to believe the Bilbe reference then thats fine, a lot of things in the Bible are taken on faith, but don’t look at this picture as proof, the picture is a scam.


    March 5, 2012 at 6:36 pm

  14. If you are interested in giant skeletons, there are over 300 Historical accounts in “The Nephilim Chronicles: Fallen Angles in the Ohio Valley.” The Ohio Valley burial mounds and henges are identical to those in England. Symbolism, Sacred Geometry, a Numerology Codex called Gematria helps trace the Giants back to the Biblical Lands and the accounted giants known as the Amorites or Nephilim.

  15. When I was a young man I would visit a small town in Ohio called Miamiville. The quaint village bordered the Western side of the Little Miami River west of today’s I-70 Little Miami bridge about 1 mile. I came across a private museum established by the farmer who owned the museum and surrounding land. I don’t remember if there was a small admission fee or not, but inside the museum I discovered a most amazing exhibit of giant human skeletons.

    The farmer built a barn like structure over an existing indian mound and meticulously excavated the mound. The giant skeletons, male and female, were lying on their backs on a pedestal of unexcavated earth. The female was 7′-6″ and the male was 9′-0″. Other related artifacts were as equally unusual. There were obsidian spear points 20″ long and 8″ wide at the base. Weapons and tools made of copper were present. Very large ceramic pots were also found in the mount.

    I’ve often wondered if that private museum still exists. If anyone knows about this museum please let me know if the museum still remains. I visited this museum several times between the years 1964 to 1966.

    • That is fantastic! I am going to go over there and have a look. I suspect that is the only way we’ll find these bones is in private collections.



      June 24, 2012 at 3:38 am

      • did you find the museum or any info?


        January 16, 2013 at 3:49 am

      • No, that museum is long gone. Whatever was there is in private collections in the attics of the local farm houses.


        January 16, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    • IF you look at the photo…just IF you do you will notice that the perspective is off as well as the shadow which is thrown….this is a fake!!

  16. Awesome article man, very good read!


    June 26, 2012 at 11:06 am

  17. For physical proof of giants go to the Cairo Museum. Simply go up to the second floor and you will see many ancient Egyptian sarcophacus’. Some measuring 11 feet in length and 2 feet 6 inches in width. The department of antiquites doesn’t delve into political correctness. Check it out. I imagine you could have someone photo the coffins for you though cameras are a big no-no in the museum. I have an Egyptian friend you may contact.

    Jerry Daniele

    August 5, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    • Great points. Cracking open those sarcophacus’ very large people are inside. I am still trying to locate the family who owned the little display on the Little Miami River. There’s a good bet those bones are in a private collection in somebodies attic. I just have to figure out who.


      August 5, 2012 at 3:15 pm

      • Correction! The private museum was on the little miami river where the I71 bridge crosses not in miamiville, sorry.Btw this area is known to be heavy into “witchcraft” so be on guard. I took an interest in bullwhips a year ago…awesome tool in the right hands. It sounds like you are the right hands.

        Jerry Daniele

        August 5, 2012 at 4:34 pm

      • You sound like my kind of guy. If you feel like taking it up again check out my buddy off to the right. He is making some neat whips.

        That sounds like it is right around Morgans.

    November 25, 2012 at 6:32 am

  19. Nomore. Then a giant ape an picture. U can make the size bigger an make it look.Like a giant human but is a fake the big other


    February 22, 2013 at 3:21 pm

  20. Unfortunately, a lot of these giant bones will never be seen again. The Smithsonian had them crated up and dumped into the sea. Because it goes against their “religion” Darwinism. Beware, remember, nothing is as it seems.


    July 14, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    • I wish I could dispute you on this, but I can’t. You are most likely right. I don’t know that they were dumped in the sea, but certainly have been placed in private collections where they are not on public display.


      July 14, 2013 at 6:56 pm

  21. How come these bones where not preserved for a Museum? These bones where proven to be from Black people and in OHIO, and other states they where destroyed. This could be one of the greatest find in the history of mankind and they don’t preserve the bones? Very suspicious!!!
