A miniature Stonehenge-style monument in Guam, this site demonstrates a home-building technique that dates back to 500 A.D. The site shows eight pillars atop which the Chamorro people once built their homes. These pillars have been moved from different locations across the southern portion of Guam to rest here as a monument to the indigenous people. The pillars are made of limestone taken from coral, and were transported great distances, to the place of the homebuilder. These stones often doubled as grave markers topping the buried relatives of the homeowner and are considered sacred.
