Narragansett, Rhode Island: Druid's Chair and Altar

A seat-shaped rock, dragged to its current spot in the 19th century, from which Druid sacrifices were said to be overseen.

RI Historical Cemetery #3

115 Gibson Ave., Narragansett, RI
RI Historical Cemetery #3. US-1 exit onto Kingstown Rd east into downtown Narragansett. At the stop sign turn right onto Boon St. Drive south one mile. You'll pass Woodward St. and Kinney Ave. Just past the Dead End sign you'll see a house on the right, and then a low stone wall in the trees. The cemetery gateway is there. Pull off the road, park, and walk through the gateway to the Druid's Chair monument. Overgrown and hard to see in summer.

Not totally sure. Pretty sure this has been removed.

It's probably still there, although our vague directions and misplaced map point didn't make it easy to find. We've improved them. Try again!

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.

Druid's Chair

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.
