America's Stonehenge

Last edited Tue Jun 25, 2019, 11:28 AM - Edit history (1)

Fascinating article with excellent photographs and accompanying story. I had not heard of this, but a friend sent me the URL this a.m. I am thinking this might be a destination for a trip later this summer.

New Hampshire has an ancient site (4000 years old) with features like the Greek oracles. And even (shudder) a sacrificial table? Yeah, it has a drainage tube. Shudder.

America’s Stonehenge | A Historical Site Shrouded in Mystery
In the heart of the woods atop a granite-studded hill in Salem, New Hampshire, stands a site shrouded in legend – America’s Stonehenge.


Once known as the roadside attraction Mystery Hill, America’s Stonehenge in Salem, New Hampshire, includes mysterious rock formations, a warren of man-made caves and chambers, and stone walls that stretch across the hilltop. The origin and purpose of the structures has been hotly debated among scholars and amateur sleuths for years, raising far more questions than answers.

2. there is a home page that appears to be down

the wiki is interesting, but skeptical. drill marks from the nearby quarry seem to date the liths to 19th century rather than pre Columbian.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/America%27s_Stonehenge

L'Anse aux Meadows, a 1000 ad norse settlement in newfoundland is a little more historically founded.

another mysterious site is the Georgia guidestones, built for certain in 1980…

4. the wiki is very interesting

and presents other types of possibilities.

How to explain the drainage slab and the place for the projecting the voice, though. You'd have to do some serious building to m'fr that.
