Stonehenge was built over 5000 years ago on the plains of Salisbury, England. Who built it and why remains a mystery to this day but, no matter, it remains a popular tourist destination. Unfortunately, England is a long way to travel to visit a big circle of stones. Luckily two guys, Al Sheppard and Doug Hill, decided to build a replica in the Texas hill country on Al’s property near the town of Hunt, TX. Known as Stonehenge II, it was free and open to the public.
After Al’s death, Stonehenge II was permanently relocated to the campus of the Hill Country Arts Foundation, at 120 Point Theater Road, Ingram, TX 78025. It remains free and open to the public every day from dawn until nightfall. The next time you are in the area, you might stop by and have a look.
