Area Attraction: Time travel vortex in Watertown!

Jefferson County just gets more and more interesting. Corinne, Better Farm's director of programming and Permaculture,  recently tipped us off to this bit of local lore:

There is apparently a vortex of some sort nestled right in Watertown's Thompson Park, fewer than 30 miles from Better Farm. Coincidence?

The vortex is allegedly located near a certain stone somewhere in the park; with one account of a man vanishing in front of witnesses for a full 20 minutes before reappearing in a different location. Accounts of experiences around this strange stone include phrases like "a sudden feeling of uneasiness"; "hearing things"; and "flat out feel weird".

This is obviously going to require some on-site investigation. As you await updates with bated breath, check out this short news clip on the vortex. As an added bonus, here's an amateur ghost-hunter clip taken at Thompson Park:
