My theory is that it's an anti-Mythos ward. Cthulhu and his pals are described as non-Euclidean in geometry, and a square by contrast is Euclidean AF.

Because you'd never get a pentagram shaped spot through the government...

Bayers Lake Mystery Walls

Who built these rock walls near Halifax, Canada? And for what purpose?

That looks like an ordinary English dry-stone wall in these photos. Farmers and shepherds in Northern England have built them routinely for centuries to mark the boundaries between fields. Emigrants from England would likely build them if there were suitable stones around, and would not regard them as interesting, or bother keeping records about them.
