Witch Altar.

Witch Altar

Joseph Peace Hazard was an eccentric and wealthy spiritualist who built his family tomb in the shape of a druid circle. Legend has it that sacrifices to the druid gods were performed here and are still performed here, although it is in a wealthy neighborhood. I would think the cops would end it pronto, but who knows, the area is thickly wooded. It is also called Kendal Green.

Nineteenth century eccentric spiritualist Joseph Peace Hazard was on the beach one day and spotted a rock ripe with occult potential. He had it moved to the spot where it now resides and is said to have overseen his version of Druid sacrifices from this seat.
