Mystical Celtic Goddess Airmid's Spring with Red Stone Path Described in Coshocton, Ohio



Airmid was a Goddess who healed and brought the dead back to life at venerated springs. Springs were sacred places that were symbolic of the underworld.  At this location the spring (underworld) is connected to a Sun Temple (Heaven).

Blood Path to Venerated Spring

    On Howard Miller's farm in Keene Township, a few miles from Coshocton, is a circle that has excited much interest in a recent examination of this county's ancient earthworks. Although cut down by the plow in earlier years, its location in an orchard has somewhat preserved its outline. There is an opening in the circle, and the plow, usually the mound destroyer, was in this instance a discoverer; for it came upon a path of red stone leading from this opening in the circle down to the spring now used by the Avon kennels. The blood-red path has the appearance of burnt stone, according to some observers, but it is not unlike the red sandstone found elsewhere in the county. There have been no skeletons found in this circle to indicate the sepulchral function belonging to the burial mounds of this region, neither does its size classify this circle among our ancient works of military significance, nor can it be even faintly likened to an effigy mound, of which none for that matter is recorded in this county.
