Explore the mysteries of New Hampshire's ancient past
The forests near Salem, NH are wondrous, but there's more to see here than just the trees. At America's Stonehenge off Rte. 111, you could be following in the steps of an ancient tribe of mystery men. In the woods you'll find a maze of rocks, stone chambers, and megaliths they may have left behind. Who were they? Native Americans? Or Old World voyagers who crossed the Atlantic well ahead of Columbus, people with knowledge of astronomy and stone construction? The questions have stymied scholars for generations. Our museum includes an orientation film, and our gift shop includes books with more information. In winter months our one-hundred-plus acres are also great for snowshoeing. And sharing the property is a small herd of gentle alpacas who love greeting visitors.
