Stonehenge, also known as Stone Cottage or High House, is a historic summer estate house on Windmill Hill Road in Dublin, New Hampshire. The 2-1/2 story shingle style house was built in 1889 by F. W. Stevens for Martha Parsons, the daughter of a wealthy Boston merchant, and was the first in a series of summer properties built in the area by the Parsons family. The house features massive fieldstone chimneys, fully shingled upper stories, and eyebrow dormers in the rear roof. The property was acquired in 1953 by Frank McKenna, who separated a wing of the house, and moved it down the hill to the road, where it stands as the McKenna Cottage.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
