About
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 a whole lot going on, tho to be fair we visit during the pandemic so some activities were not in place. You can see this place in 10 mins, including the art center. We did go back to watch the live theatre show which the weather was great and the show was cheesy, not worth the money. But it goes to a cause so that was ok. I can say I went.....not sure if I would make this a focal point of a trip tho.

Not bad. The place is smaller than I thought it would be but big enough for what it provides. There are several sculptures made by local artists that are quite a scene and my favorite part. The whole place is an open museum really. The Stonehenge replica was less impressive to me, but still a true work of art. We walked around the whole area down to the river basin. Unfortunately we did not get to see any of the shows they offer. We were staying in San Antonio and decided to drive there for pics really. I would say it was worthwhile for me because I like to experience things in person and see everything there is to see but think it is a must stop if you are already in the area.

This Texas attraction gives you glimpses of England's Stonehenge and Easter Island's Moai carvings through art in the Texas hill country. The site is easy to get to and there is no admission fee. There is a small gift shop as well as a small cafe on site. It's worth a stop if you're in the area.

After reading the origin of this attraction, I appreciated it even more. The creator of this attraction put a lot of hard work and time, and then donated the park. I respect someone's creativity and time.

Anyways, a quick stop to appreciate the replica, keep in mind it is only 60% as tall as original.

It was a cloudy day, so we took a drive from Bandera to Ingram, about 30 miles. Glad we did! Stonehenge II is a quirky attraction that’s worth the drive. Nicely maintained. Wish the gift shop had been open. Don’t miss seeing the river just across the way. Nice and peaceful.

A not-quite scale replica of what a complete Stonehenge would have been. But unlike the real thing, you can actually get right up to the "stones". Definitely worth a stop, especially since there are other sights to check out here on the grounds of the Hill Country Arts Foundation.

Nice structure can be seen directly from road. Easy pull over to walk the grounds & check it out. Local friends built as tribute & now it stands in town as the replica of the only one in England.

I had seen this place on Pinterest prior to planning my Texas trip. Using my GPS, I had no trouble locating the site. This was a very fun place for kids and adults. Please Read the very informative Wikipedia write up before you visit. Great place for a family picnic!!! You must see this attraction. It is unique!!!

Spent some time in the car this morning heading over to Ingram, Texas to see a Hills Country attraction. I can’t believe that I spent the money in 2014 to go to see Stone Hedge in England when an almost full-size complete model was right here in Texas.
Back in 1989 Al Shepperd was given a limestone slab by his friend Doug Hill which was left over from a patio project. Al took the slab, stood it on end, and an art project took hold. Over the next few years Stone Hedge 2 took place on Shepard’s property in Hunt, Tx. After visiting Easter Island, Shepperd added two 13-ft. tall Easter Island heads a year and a half later.
Sheppard passed away in 1994 and his art project needed a new home. The Hill Country Arts Foundation purchased Stone Hedge 2, along with the two Easter Island Heads and had it all transported to their new home in Ingram.
There is a nice shade tree with a picnic table right next to the monument. Great place to have a picnic lunch and plenty of room for the kids to run. It is handicap accessible. Access is free and there is a gift shop on the property if you care to make a donation to the foundation.
