In 1937, an insurance executive purchased some land in Salem, New Hampshire and named it Mystery Hill because of some unusual stone formations located upon it.  In 1982, it was renamed America’s Stonehenge.

Today, the odd site is part of a public recreational area that includes snowshoe trails and analpaca farm. 

Several theories exist to explain the origin of America’s Stonehenge:

  • Local farmers built it  in the 18th and 19th centuries.
  • William Goodwin built it in the 1930s.
  • It was built during a pre-Columbian era by unidentified persons, perhaps ancient Celts.
Here’s another weird but wonderful American Stonehenge site.
