I stumbled across America’s Stonehenge while reviewing MONEY’s 2021 list of the 50 best places to live in the US.

Located in Salem NH (about 33 miles from Boston MA), America’s Stonehenge is more than 4000 years old.  Like England’s Stonehenge, the stones have a language of their own:

Built by a Native American Culture or a migrant European population? No one knows for sure. A maze of man-made chambers, walls and ceremonial meeting places, at over 4,000 years old America’s Stonehenge is most likely the oldest man-made construction in the United States.

Like Stonehenge in England, America’s Stonehenge was built by ancient people well versed in astronomy and stone construction. It has been determined that the site is an accurate astronomical calendar. It was, and still can be, used to determine specific solar and lunar events of the year.

This video is an interesting introduction to the prehistoric stone foundations on the site:

How did I not know about this? It’s a 3 1/2 hour drive for us, but I’ve put it on my “to see” list.
😉

I wondered if you had stumbled across it in your travels. Seems like a road trip in the making.

Indeed!

You go, girl!

Amazing!

Imagine buying a piece of property and finding prehistoric “ruins” on the back 20!

Kate Crimmins - September 16, 2021

That can ruin your plans to turn it into an amusement park!

True dat!

Fascinating! I have never heard of this wonder. Just imagine! Great sharing, Nancy.

The stoic stones still whisper about what transpired 4000 years ago . . . on a small parcel of land in what is now New England.

Sand castles don’t have the same staying power. 😀

I wonder what happened to the civilization that built this site. Did they move on? Were they wiped out? Maybe they migrated to Central American

You might be interested in the book referenced in this “related” post, Nicki:

Sun Temples and Druids

It’s called America B.C. by Barry Fell ~> “penetrating the mysteries of the ancient settlers in the New World” including Druids in New England and Phoenicians in Iowa. My grandfather was fascinated by the mysterious settlers in New England. 😀

I have family in Flower Mound, TX and Naperville, IL.
Had no idea about America’s Stonehenge!

Fantastic stone masons who built structures that have survived for 4000 years!

Fascinating – I had no idea. Wish I’d known when we were visiting New England some years ago. 🙂

nrhatch - September 17, 2021

No worries, Sally ~> you can go to England’s Stonehenge instead! 😛

Or . . . come back for another swing through New England to check it out and get some lobster and chowder!
