Etched onto a rock that’s part of a cliff overhang in Wyoming County, West Virginia, is a set of controversial petroglyphs. If you have the nose for seeking out the pockets of hidden history within the United States, then these incredible rock carvings will satisfy even the most reserved amateur archeologist.
The Luther Elkins Petroglyph, also known as the “Lynco,” “Lillyhaven,” or “Horse Creek” petroglyphs, are located at the base of a steep hill overlooking the bottom of the upper Clear Fork of the Guyandotte River. Though their age and meaning are unknown, they’re widely attributed to the Algonquian peoples.
