The Sacred Grove
There were a few trees that were dead and hollow inside. Here is Ben next to one of them:
There are remnants of stone walls in the grove:
A book my dad has theorizes that these are remnants of walls from Nephite times, that the areas where the Nephites lived and eventually were exterminated were right there by the great lakes. Something I read on a placard in the Smith home was that, in these times, farmers would haul stones to mark the borders of their land, and then later build the fences on top of those stones. So that might be what these stones are. Who knows?
