Putnam County, NY Stone Chamber

This one will give you something to think about.

It is up the road from the chamber in the previous post. It sits just off the road at an intersection, so be very careful of the traffic.

This roadside chamber is easy to pass by.

Corner entrance stone showing drill mark. Probably split by a hand powered drill since the bore mark is rough.

Another exterior view.

Sorry. There are no interior shots because there were too many people inside. There was another drill mark on a stone at the bottom in the rear of the structure.
