Time Travel: Maryhill Stonehenge Memorial – 2008

A visit to the Stonehenge Memorial April 13, 2008

I had a brief obsession with Stonehenge in the mid 1990s and had never had the opportunity to visit the real one nor any of it’s inspired imitators in America. I finally remedied this lack. The Maryhill henge is made of concrete and is built to replicate the completed/non-ruined version of Stonehenge.

The Maryhill Museum of Art was closed on the day I visited, but I will be visiting again.
