“Visit Stonehenge but without the drive”
Stonehenge II is an homage to the original Stonehenge monument and is located in the Texas Hill Country. Stonehenge II was conceived by Al Shepperd and built with the help of his friend and neighbor, Doug Hill. Originally located on FM 1340 west of Hunt, Texas, Stonehenge II now resides on the campus of the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram, Texas (78025). According to the signage at the site: "Stonehenge II is not a replica; it is about 2/3 the size of the original, and it is not oriented to the sun, as is the original. It is, however, Doug Hill's impression, in steel and concrete, of the nearly 5,000 year old circle of stones on the Salisbury Plain." In addition to the constructed and real stones comprising the monument, there are also two fabricated Moai, or Easter Island (Rapa Nui/Isla de Pascua) statues located at the Hill Country Arts Foundation. These imitation Moai are made of the same material as the Stonehenge II stones.
A very fun stop to be captured by simple wonder. A nice stop to get out of the car for a while and stretch your legs in a fun engaging environment.
Nice piece of art not far off main road
Where is the 2nd one?
Of the two Stonehenge replicas in West Texas (yes, there are two....) This one takes second place. Its a fun photo op but I appreciate the one that lies in ruins. More things to climb on :D
Had to stop to see this as we were driving by on I-10. Cute photo opp, and nice items for sale in their gift shop.
Drove by this randomly on the way to buy a horse. Didn't know it was there until we passed it! It was fun to stop by after seeing the horse, but definitely only made me want to see the real thing more!
Easy to access, right off the main road. Cute small town area too.
This is a cool place to stop and take a picture, but nothing worth going out of your way for. It is directly on the main road and most of your photos will have other people, cars, or even the baseball field in the background.
Cute stop for photos with clean restrooms and nice little shops.
First stop on my 3 day road trip to New Mexico. I had to wait out some workers that were parked blocking the structure in order to get a decent photo so i had lunch at the cafe. Not a ton of options but the staff was friendly. Cafe is cash only. Workers were gone when I came out and there is a few nearby geocaches if you're into that! Area was clean aside from some hay that seemed to be left behind from a recent fall event.
Awesome rest stop. The place is well taken care off than what the pics show. There is a restaurant and gift shop.
