Story of this is unbelievable... someone had too much stone, came to UTPB and offered it... then Prof. Chris Stanley formed team that build a perfect replica -- even the orientation is right... Definitely something to see, if you are in the area!

Very nice life-size replica. Not like seeing the real thing, but actually kind of better since the real one is all the way over in England and gated...off-limits to the public.

Heard about this while out this way . Dropped by to see it, unfortunately the weather was not too good but still worth while in case you do not make it to the UK. Has some history about it as well

Stopped mid road trip to spend some time outside the car. Very cool replica and the information posted was well done. It's a nice area to enjoy some fresh air, and we had quite a good time walking around and taking pictures.

Saw this while driving, made a stop, read the story boards. Nice grassy areas around and quiet location, right in town off 42nd street, cant miss it. On college campus, light traffic

Great replica, with good explanations of the reasoning behind the constuction and of its placement. It's huge, and there's enough room to the outlying stones to make it a worthwhile hike with young kids. The markers and inscriptions don't just honor the builders and funders,...More

Stonehenge is a wonderful place for pictures! It is based upon the replica of the famous Stonehenge in England. The stones are much sturdier and obviously a different color than the original Stonehenge. This is located on the University of Texas campus off of 42nd...More

I took my children here after we had read and watched some documentaries on Stonehenge. They enjoyed walking around and climbing. This is a nice place for photos, or just to stretch your legs.

Stayed the night in Odessa on road trip to California. Heard about this mini version of Stonehenge and decided to take the kids to see it. Very nice replica. I was fortunate to visit the real Stonehenge last year and this was a good model....More
