“The first WWI monument”

The Maryhill Stonehenge was the first monument in the United States to honor the dead of World War I (specifically, soldiers from Klickitat County, Washington who had died in the still on-going war). The altar stone is placed to be aligned with sunrise on the Summer Solstice. Hill, a Quaker, informed that the original Stonehenge had been used as a sacrificial site, and thus constructed the replica as a reminder that humanity is still being sacrificed to the god of war. The monument was originally located in the center of Maryhill, which later burned down leaving only the Stonehenge replica. A second formal dedication of the monument took place upon its completion on May 30, 1929. Sam Hill, who died in 1931, lived long enough to see his Stonehenge completed. The dedication plaque on this Washington Stonehenge is inscribed: "In memory of the soldiers of Klickitat County who gave their lives in defense of their country. This monument is erected in the hope that others inspired by the example of their valor and their heroism may share in that love of liberty and burn with that fire of patriotism which death can alone quench."

It can get really windy up here, but it doesn't matter because you've saved a ton of money on airfare to England!

Fascinating to think of one man builing this for his community to honor those passed while serving our country. Worth a quick stop to see and to check out the beautiful views of the Columbia River.

Totally cool place to pull over and see. We were on the Oregon side of the river and decided to pop over the bridge and add it to our road tripping. It was a beautiful view and a wonderful tribute to those who sacrificed their lives for world peace!!

Was very windy but was nice. We were there early July and it was warm but not hot. Wind makes it seem chilly. Very neat place to visit. No real bathrooms only porta potty’s so make sure to stop before getting there. Visitor center was closed on Sunday not sure if it’s open other days. A definite stop if your passing thru. You can see it from the highway which is really neat.
