Last January I wrote about an Echo Ring. Well it turns out that the echo ring I had in the photo was a bandstand. I was in error, I know I am not perfect..I make mistakes all the time. Here is the link to that blog post Curiosity: Echo Ring.
This is the REAL echo ring.
It is a Deane Park on top of the hill as you turn into the park area. It is a stone structure with two “doorways” and a place in the center to stand. The idea is this: someone stands in the center and whispers and anyone that is standing at the edge of the rock circle should be able to hear what was whispered.
As far as I can see, it needs minimal repairs. The dollar figure that I heard was way out of line. You see that is what fueled my curiosity..I read where someone suggested a complete repair of this structure for a very large amount of money. I couldn’t believe that any structure in this park was worth that much.
When I tried to find out more about this echo ring and the why’s and when’s..I hit a brick wall. I am keeping one eye out for any information that the historical society may have.
Today is one of my days off:)
