“Stonehenge Ontario”…

Another of Canada’s hidden secrets

Stonehenge Ontario is an unusual positioning of eighteen huge boulders, some as high as twelve feet, located on the northern shore of Larder Lake. Although they don’t have the same visual impact as England’s Stonehenge, they’re still a marvel to contemplate. Their alignment matches exactly the rising and setting of the

sun, and their proximity to Mt. Cheminis, a volcanic plug, suggest that the stones were once a Native American shrine used for worship.

Archaeologists who have dug in the area have found evidence that Indians lived in the area 6.000 years ago and there is evidence present that suggests they had established a huge quarry nearby. Archaeologists continue to work in the area to find more clues to the mystery of the stones.

That’s it … All that is available online for an unique phenomenon that remains as mysterious as the original.

“Canada has a rich and colourful history that, for the most part, is waiting to be discovered.”

    • Thanks you for the new information regarding ‘Stonhenge Ontario.’ It is a fascinating subject, but I can’t understand why the feds or province haven’t undertaken a more aggressive study of the area.

      Mind you, I’m not a great fan of either.
