Artemas, Pennsylvania: Megalith Circle in the Woods

Since 1994 people have met every Labor Day at this remote farm to raise giant stones in what will eventually be a 200-foot-wide circle. It's an Earth Religion thing.

Stone Circle at Four Quarters

Although not built to be a replica of Stonehenge, Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary of Earth Religions is building a Stone Circle in the tradition of moving megaliths. Every Labor Day hundreds of people get together to move 5- to 10-ton stones with ropes and rollers. Labor Day 2014 will see 16-foot-long monoliths weighing more 10,000 pounds added to the 46 standing stones.

Started in 1994, this year will mark the twentieth year. The "Circle," when it is complete, will have a circumference of 200 feet. Right now it wraps more than half-way around.
