Attraction details
Owner description: 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 mini-Stoneghenge is fun. Pictures can be taken in such a way that people will think one has visited the original.

The address/coordinates listed is inside a Home Depot. Another website states the attraction moved to Ingram, TX.
"Relocated to the grounds of the Hill Country Arts Foundation. I-10 exit south into Kerrville. Turn right when you get to Hwy 27/Main St. Take Hwy 27 to Ingram (about 5 miles). At the second light in Ingram go straight through the intersection toward Hunt, which will put you on Hwy 39 (Hwy 27 will angle off to the right toward Mountain Home). After the light, watch for the Johnson Creek Bridge; immediately after the bridge you will see the sign for the Hill Country Arts Foundation on the left."

This could make you NEVER want to visit the real deal. Don't let that happen, the original is magical. The original is huge and is as miraculous as the pyramids of Egypt. This looks like a school science project…a fun thing to fabricate when you are bored to death but…give me a break, its plain silly. Sprayed on plaster covering…what?

A nice place to go if you haven't seen the one inEaster Island. They tried to make it look like the original one( which I hv seen in pics only). But its not according to orientation of sun...also a little smaller...concrete built hollow structure. But good for some memorable clicks!
