Overview
More
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.

Not the quirkiest of things or places but it is unusual and amusing. Texas has the most wonderfully eccentric characters to complete such uncommon art work. Granted they are smaller replicas of the original Stonehenge in England and Moai Heads in Chile. I think it's...More

The owner/chef of the Encore Resturant is skilled, prepares great food and stocks good wines and beers. Perfect venue for pre-performance dinners at The Point.

Really cool surprising treat in the Hil Country. Easy access to nice little area. Really well done replicas of both Stonehenge and the Easter Island heads. Relaxing and relatively uncrowded.

This is a perfect picnic spot. Tons of flowers surrounded the Stonehenge II and the weather cooperated nicely with a cool breeze on a warm day. It is a perfect spot to just rest, eat and share thoughts with those closest to you.

I got there mid afternoon right before a storm so that added a nice effect. I imagine sunrise and sunset would be nice as well.

We don't have RV parking facilities, but our parking lot is large enough to accommodate an RV and we are close to several RV parks.
