The entire concept of America's Stonehenge is interesting. There can be no doubt that at least part of the property is some sort of large scale astrological calendar, but its origins are unknown. There is a small gift shop with a good variety of related books, music, and gift items. Visit on an important astrological date (like Solstice or Equinox)... More

I read a bunch of bad reviews about is place elsewhere and I guess I never thought about the points they were making, until I read those reviews. So, it's real simple. If you want a bit of history and a bit of exercise, and just want something to do, then go for it. If you are a historian, scientist,... More

We went to this location with low expectations after reading other reviews, but had a coupon and thought, "why not, how bad can it be?". The answer is BAD, worse than you'd think. I thought that even if the structures were not impressive, we would enjoy the outdoors. But the outdoor area is so un-authentic that it is impossible to... More

This is a very interesting place to visit. I've seen documentaries about America's Stonehenge so I was familiar with mystery and lore associated with this unique site. There's a lot of speculation and conjecture as to who build this site, when and why. Paleo-Indians, Druids, Vikings, Phoenicians? Who knows? And then there is the astronomical relationships of the rocks to... More

This was our first visit to America's Stonehenge. It was very interesting to step way back in history while touring this site. The interesting video before we went out on the trails was very informative and set the scene well. If you are interested in history at all, this would be a great place to visit.

At $11, this was not worth the visit. You get handed a little map that's hard to read and follow, you watch a video that was made in the early 80's at best (it literally says you can buy the VHS in the store), then try to make your way around and figure out what you're looking at. It's too... More

This site is an interesting little aside in new england, a site ostensibly used as an ancient civilization's home or village and an astronomical calendar. It is hard not to be skeptical. The site is known to have been used in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the curators argue that the home there in those days was built on... More

While it is interesting there isn't much to grab one on this site. the paths are poorly marked and the history is limited to a folder handed out at the onset. We were not wowed by anything we saw.

One of my companions has been very interested in visiting this site, having visited other similar sites around the world. Checking Groupon we found a great discount situation, the next day the Groupon deal offered was $2 more. This is a place to visit for "a nice day walking in the woods". As to the Historical/Mystical aspect, take it with... More

It's a nice walk through the woods but not much more. Definitely not worth the money. There was a wedding taking place while we were there. We wondered why they chose that spot.
