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.

“Out of the way fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2011

I sometimes like to find these strange out of the way places. And this one certainly qualifies. Everytime we went to Fredericksburg, I wanted to jaunt over to see Stonehenge. My wife would always roll her eyes and luckily for her we always ran out of time or the weather would be too rainy. But one day her luck ran out. When we passed the highway into Kerrville, I had to fess up to my mission. It was a little ways out in the country. Near a small place called Hunt. Out in the middle of the field. Stonehenge and Easter Island Statues. If you like weird things like this, then you too should make the journey. The kids loved it. They were able to play all around it and try to climb and hide. We took some pictures and ate at Culver's on the way back through Kerrville. Even my wife reluctantly admitted it was kind of neat to see. Though she still does not quite understand my fascination with it.

“Interesting and odd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2008

We visited Stonehenge II while doing a road trip through Hill Country. It was so odd to see Stonehenge in the middle of a huge field, in the middle of nowhere.

I've never seen the real Stonehenge or Easter Island, so it was very interesting to see them in Texas. We couldn't quite figure out how to get a good photo, to show the folks at home.

It's definitely worth the time to see them, if you're in the area.

“Check it out if you like unusual things”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2008

If you're roaming around the Hill Country, head out on Rt 1340 from Kerrville, going towards Hunt, and check out the scale replica of Stonehenge. There is nothing else in the field except replica statues of Easter Island, and visitors are free to roam around and take photos. The statues may seem out of place to the western aura, but they're worth checking out. There is no real address other than Rt 1340, but stop along the way and anyone will direct you.
