History

Morehead State University was originally founded as a private teacher's college in 1887. A group of nuns reportedly were instumental in its founding with 13 buildings layout in the shape of a cresent moon.

A "sacred geometry" in the design of the campus is suggested by the black marble obolisk with a number "13" in the middle section, the placement is roughly in the center of the county much like the "G" of the square and compass. (there is a black marble pyrimid in downtown Salyersville 132feet from the licking river, known as a "devil's river" since it flows generally south to north like the nile.) One local Annonomys Alumni researcher suggests that the original teaching college, started by nuns was 13 buildings laid out in a cresent moon pattern. Today the curved streets and side walks resemble a cresent moon on the main campus with a cemetary and catholic church at its base and a music and communications school at the top. The county also had a series of adult schools called "Moonlight schools" (in part) because the classes were taught on moonlit evenings so as to provide light to travel, to be "enlightened". The co-incidence of the Cincinatti soap company Proctor & Gamble occult logos with a cresent moon and 13stars is given the direct link for the large pig market history of the area and the 1st concrete highway in Kentucky (old Flemingsburg Road/Fleming ave.) Linking to Limestone/Maysville. The Highest point in the county is called "Limestone Knob" perhaps for the limestone or for Limestone Kentucky the original county seat of Mason County.


Numerous Confederate Kentuckians and masons are recognised on buildings names such as Brekinridge, Morehead and others.


Numerous other "sacred geometry" sites can be found not just in WashingtonDC : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manitoba_Legislative_Building The symbology of placement of the space science radio telescope seems obvious as a all seeing eye capstone for the entire institution. The "dish" is on a knob at the back of the cresent shaped main campus much like the Shriners cresent and star.
