Mystery Hill America's Stonehenge 







Route 28
Salem, NH

Marker Number: 72
Name and date established: Salem 1970

Description: Four miles east on Route 111 is a privately owned complex of strange stone structures bearing similarities to early stone work found in western Europe. They suggest an ancient culture may have existed here more than 2,000 years ago. Sometimes called "American's Stonehenge", these intriguing chambers hold a fascinating story and could be remnants of a pre-Viking or even Phoenician civilization.

Location: Located on the east side of Route 28, south of its junction with Route 111, and 2 miles north of its junction with Route 97.
