This probably is archaeological remnants, my personal research into the paleolithic native americans deals with looking for stone mounds, walls, or petroforms such as these throughout Oakland county. Have you seen anything else like this in Ortonville State rec or in Oakland county for that matter?

Hi jwolford51,

I am exciting to know that you agree with my assumption, I have never seen this kind of strange stuff in this state. As far as I know, this is only one. But it looks quite big.

I'll be sure to make my way to Ortonville State Rec to survey the area for stone mounds/walls. I was looking at the topography of the area and according to my hypothesis of where to find these petroforms, it seems that there would be some there.

Good luck, jwolford51

I hope that the snow will be gone soon for easy survey,
