The Stone Chambers of Putnam County

THE STONE CHAMBERS OF PUTNAM COUNTY inspired my time travel romance story THIS MOMENT, which appears in THE KISS: AN ANTHOLOGY ABOUT LOVE AND OTHER CLOSE ENCOUNTERS. It has since been developed into the novel, HIGHLAND PASSAGE. I live near many of these stone chambers. They have always intrigued me. For my story, I thought they might make good time travel portals. Below are some articles with some background information.
