I had a chance to visit the Whangtown and Mead corners stone chambers this week thanks to Polly Midgley NY coordinator for NEARA who connected fellow NEARA member and Earth Healer Janice Carr and I up with Bill Pollard. Bill is an expert on the stone chambers in Putnam County and tells me that there are over 200 stone chambers in the county.
