Interesting!

What Monica said.....I find this very interesting. Why did they build the stone walls?

Ellen

Sources seem speculative, but it is possible it was to divide fields for agriculture and animals. Also possible it was to divide plots of land; one assumes the walls were built from stones that were removed from the soil, making it easier to till, but that's my conjecture based on knowledge of early East Coast US farming!
