A City Built on the Mounds
What may seem like a normal piece of land to most people is not what locals of Burlington, WI think about their public cemetery. Burlington is considered by many to be a haunted place and the home of ancient burial mound builders, who built the town over what was known as the deceptively pleasant-sounding “Rainbow Vortex.” Twenty-seven effigy burial mounds were buried underneath the town itself, allowing an unusually high amount of paranormal activity to happen beside the cemetery. Visitors have reported strong feelings of uneasiness and the feeling they are being watched when walking through the cemetery, and still others have reported seeing weird balls of light, shadowed figures, or glimpses of strange, otherworldly creatures in the area. Perhaps all the occurrences are related to the fabled ‘Rainbow Vortex’?
