 I don't know about "America's Stonehenge" in Salem Mass (or Salem Oregon 
for that matter) but I grew up on a farm in Oregon which was directly accross
the Columbia River from a place called "Mary Hill" Washington were there is
an exact (?) replica of Stonehenge built by a fellow named Sam Hill for his
wife who was of European aristocracy. Sam was a rail road millionaire who
did strange things like build a castle at the east end of the Columbia River
Gorge. 

 I'm not an expert on the place (you know how you learn the least sometimes
about places right in your back yard?), but I remember being told that the
replica at Maryhill was on the same parallel as the real thing in England.
I've been there several times and it is pretty amazing. I was there (As a
matter of fact) durring a solar eclipse and once at dawn on the first day
of spring. 
 
  Stonehenge (Maryhill) is about 87-90 miles east of Vancover Washington,
I'd say it's closer to "Twin Peaks " than Seatle Washington, actually I'd
say that if I were to guess where Twin Peaks was, I put it half way between
Stonehenge and Seattle as the owl flies.....
