I heard about this place before or maybe just saw a photo, I don't remember. I had a couple of days off and went to the area with my metal detector.
I really wasn't expecting to find something in extraordinary. I went deep in the forest and after crossing a Lenape Trail I found it. Very
interesting. If you notice a difference in the sunlight of the photos, it's because I went there 2 different days. (I didn't have measuring tape the

I read somewhere that it was built by a rich man called Ball (last name), in the early 1900's like a picnic area and that's pretty much what we know
so far. When I saw it, I found hard to believe such story for many reasons. The soil is so rocky and uneven, a huge rock covers about 50% of the area
in the circle, really bumpy. Certainly very uncomfortable and distant. There are other flat areas around that are more suitable for a picnic.
I tried to run a cord from one pillar to the other to see the symmetry of the construction, it was windy, cold and didn't have enough cord.
It would be way less complicated to build a square shelter. This one has 16 pillars (some of them almost destroyed), forming a circle of 25 Ft.
diameter. I measured the separation between the pillars, about 4 1/2 Ft. (from the center of each pillar to the other) in the north side, but seems
like the distance gradually changes and the distance between the 2 of the south is about 1 Ft. less.
I was planning to post a video on my YT channel but I'm pretty tired and edit it would take too much time and I can't wait to know what you guys
think about it.
