OK you could say I am a groupie since I’ve been to the real Stonehenge in England, and I’ve also been to FoamHenge in Virginia. It’s only logical that I would come here too. It’s a great place to go for a walk. Although it’s kind of off the beaten track from any place. Plenty of areas to park and you just start walking. You’ll see almost full-size dinosaurs partially hidden in the woods. I guess we missed the big giant spider and the brontosaurus. I think everything‘s made out of fiberglass with a wood infrastructure. There is no cost and there really aren’t any directional signs. You’ll see a car parked on the side of the road and that’s where you know to go. It is a partial representation of Stonehedge. Nowhere near the size. But it’s free and it’s close and it’s great exercise so just do it.

Should you ever find yourself i the vicinity of Elberta, Alabama, it is highly worth the trek over to see Bamahenge and all of the quirky statues and sculptures in the area. From dinosaurs to spiders, giant ladies to Samuraii soldiers, there's no shortage of weird things hanging out all over the place in this area. Great photo ops and a fun afternoon!

I've known about this random group of structures in Elberta, Alabama for some time now and we finally checked it out yesterday. With no explanatory signs, no signs or promotional advertising, no commercial Bamahenge is an enigma. Others, like us, ask the question "how did it get here? Who built it and why?" (People ask those questions about Stonehenge in England, too). But unlike prehistoric Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England from the Neolithic and Bronze Age are two miles west of Amesbury with their standing stones, each13 feet high, seven feet wide, and weighing around 25 tons, their much newer. These same size replicas in the woods of Alabama, which look very much like their English cousins are actually made of fiberglass. It was constructed here by billionaire dairy magnate George W. Barber, of Barber marina, and there's an interesting history of how that happened. In 1991, Barber had commissioned Virginia artist Mark Cline of Enchanted Castle Studios to design and install seven life-size dinosaurs as lawn ornaments on one of his properties. While Cline was onsite repairing hurricane damage to those sculptures in 2006, Barber, asked him to build a life-size Stonehenge replica at his Vintage Motorsports Museum outside of Birmingham, AL. However by the time Cline was able to begin work on the project in 2012, Barber had relocated four of the dinosaurs to the grounds of Barber Marina and decided to instead install the Stonehenge replica on the marina grounds, in the woods just north of the dinosaurs. While these replica stones are made of fiberglass, surprisingly hollow sounding when my daughter tapped on their sides, they were engineered to be storm-proof, anchoring the megaliths with interior concrete and half-buried telephone poles, clever. I have read quite a bit about Stonehenge over the years and, like many others, have been facinated by the mystery of their origins so since I haven't had the chance to travel to England this is the next best thing right here near my humble home. There's a pull off on the right side of the road with a small gravel parking area for 3-4 cars, but again no signs, and since it's approximately 200 yards off the road you have to be looking out for it. (we passed right by and had to turn around :-) The dinosaurs are a little further down the road and there's a beautiful marble fountain and huge steel spider at the marina itself at the end of the very nicely maintained roadway. How to find all of this? Take US Hwy 98 either eight miles east of Foley, AL, or 21 miles west of Pensacola, FL. Turn south onto County Rd 95. Drive five miles. Turn right onto Fish Trap Rd. Drive a half-mile. Turn left at the Barber Marina sign. Drive 2.5 miles to the Barber Marina.  Bottom line: Like the world's largest frying pan or ball of yarn it's one of those road warrior and travelers oddities only way cooler! Check it out!!

This is a nice outing if you are in the area. Bring water, drinks and food. Also no bathrooms. Make sure you get down to the marina too. Beautiful . Seeing all the high end boats is interesting. Nothing else in the area. Very rural part of Alabama. Again make sure to use a bathroom first and brink drinks and snacks.

Fun for the kids to hunt for the many odd attractions placed about the area; not just Bamahenge. Also fun to get pictures with them.
