Neolithic Britons (or nature-worshiping Druids or space aliens, depending on who you listen to) began assembling Stonehenge on the plains of Salisbury, England more than 5000 years ago. Its original purpose is still under debate ... but there is no mystery (or purpose, really) behind the Texas Hill Country's version.

Stonehenge II was created as an art project by the late Al Shepperd, a Hill Country Arts Foundation patron, and his neighbor Doug Hill more than 20 years ago on Shepperd's land in nearby Hunt, Texas.

 

Stonehenge II

It took nine months to build and is 90 percent the height and 60 percent the width as the original. Giving free range to his fanciful notion, Shepperd added two 13-foot Easter Island head replicas for good measure.

  After Shepperd's death, the megalithic circle along with its Easter Island sidekicks needed a new home. In an effort to preserve this true Texas landmark, the sculptures were relocated stone-by-stone to their final resting place beside the Guadalupe River on the campus of the Hill Country Arts Foundation.

This is a unique attraction located just west of Ingram and adjacent to the Hill Country Arts foundation property. A great place to visit and wander among the vertical stone replica of Stonehenge. Great for photo ops with family and kids. Finish this off with a visit to the other local attractions like quaint shops on the old Ingram loop.

Besides the original one in England I have visited quite many Stonehenge imitations and tribute in the US. This is not the most impressive one. Nevertheless it's a fine example of roadside attraction and definitely worth a stop.

I have been to the real deal in England but of course they don't let you walk inside, even tho this is a smaller version it is really cool to see up close! Worth the drive and nice day trip.

This is probably as close as we will ever get to the real Stonehenge. It's only 2/3 scale but still very cool. It's one of those places that you just have to pull over for. And it's free. You can't lose.

Stonehenge II is a unique travel stop spot located in Ingram, Texas near Kerrville. It is free and makes for a cool day trip for photo ops. My son thought it was really cool. We to out and took pictures, then walked down to the Guadalupe River which was right next to the roadside attraction.

This is a fun little gem out in the middle of nowhere. About an hour northwest from San Antonio, it`s a great stop if you`re passing through or otherwise in the area. Yes, it is a fabricated attraction, but it doesn`t detract from the "cool" factor. It is not a replica, meaning it is not exactly the same arrangement as... More

If you love history and love the original Stonehenge this is as close to them you will get. I did have my crazy friend Michael say that he felt something supernatural but maybe that's his beer buzz from lunch

We were on a trip to Fredericksburg, Texas and went on to Ingram, Texas (about 25 miles away)to see Stonehenge II and the Easter Island Heads. We have visited the original Stonehenge twice, but this was really cute as we could get up close to the rocks and touch the Heads. Worth to side trip if you are in the... More
