America's Stonehenge is an archaeological site consisting of a number of large rocks and stone structures scattered around roughly 30 acres within the town of Salem, New Hampshire in the northeast United States. America's Stonehenge is open to the public for a fee.
The site was first dubbed Mystery Hill by William Goodwin, an insurance executive who purchased the area in 1937. This was the official name of the site until 1982, when it was renamed "America's Stonehenge", a term coined in a news article in the early 1960s, in an effort to separate it from roadside oddity sites and reinforce the idea that it is an ancient archaeological site. Although the area is named after the archaeological site of Stonehenge in England, there is no cultural connection between the two.
The Frazer Center is an inclusive community where people at all levels of ability and disability gather, learn and flourish together.
This is the backstory of The Frazer Center- The life of a young couple is often the stuff of dreams: the places they may live, the journeys they may take, the children they may have. In 1948, this was the story for one of our founding families, the Lanes.
Their lives took an unexpected turn, however, when their daughter was born with cerebral palsy. Together with their dear friends the Frazers, the Lanes searched for a program for their daughter. Feeling frustrated and saddened by what they saw, they created the Cerebral Palsy School for six children at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in 1949. Two years later, the Frazers and Lanes were able to acquire the former estate of Cator Woolford (founder of the Retail Credit Company, now Equifax), thirty-nine acres located in the heart of Druid Hills. Renamed REACH in 1989 and The Frazer Center in 1999, our historic mission to offer research-based education, vocational support, and therapeutic intervention to children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families is still the heart of our work today.

Fallen Acres: A Girl's Voyage Beyond Life Without Her Parents ~
When You Face Your Greatest Fears, You Find Your Truest Self... The Elliotts are a typical American family: they look content and functional to outsiders, but really, they’re navigating difficult family dynamics. Two introverted parents with passionate feelings who have learned to master and subvert their anger find themselves confronted by a drama-fueled oldest daughter, and a self-absorbed middle daughter. The author, their youngest daughter, tries as hard as she can to be the perfect child—she doesn’t cause trouble, she stays away from angry scenes. But the repression that makes her passive and avoidant causes her reckless nature to come out in other ways…in a series of bad decisions that lead her, at the age of 40, to a place where she is determined to do the right thing for her parents during their late-life crisis. Her story is one of heartache, loss, lessons learned, truths uncovered. It’s about the ways in which God and fate intervene to show us what we’re made of. It’s a powerful testament to the need for compassion and realism with aging parents and end-of-life issues. But most of all, it’s a story of identity and redemption—and how one girl ran away from her hurtful family issues only to find that immersing herself back into her family’s world was the way to claim who she really was. Lyrical, honest, and vivid, Fallen Acres is a memoir both deeply relatable and profoundly valuable.
