My human, Mia, has been working so hard. She is so inspired by my plan. My plan is to go all over the United States meeting new and wonderful people, to share their stories, and to find the connection between all people. Mia is so wonderful, and I want to meet more wonderful humans like her.

In the 1800's this site became one of the safe house for the underground railroad. A Family called Pattee, built their home on this site (then called Mystery Hill), Mr. Pattee was believed to be very active in the underground railroad. The Ankle shackles that were discovered on this site are now in the museum.

In the 1950's the site was named and opened to the public, today many visitors enjoy America's Stonehenge and the surrounding woods. There are discovery areas leading down the path towards all the stone structures, where all ages can discover how to search for clues about this ancient place.  It was a very pleasant walk through the woods and takes about an hour and a half for people wanting to travel back in time.
