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.

Interesting stop just off hwy 27 in Ingraham. Just pull off road, park next to exhibit, and walk around it. They also have Easter Island stone faces. Good for a quick look.

Enroute back to San Antonio we got off Rt 10 to take a break at Stonehenge...well, the local recreation that is. We had fun posing for pics then went inside playhouse to used their Rest Room. There we were met by friendly staff who are very proud of their exhibit...and their local productions. Make sure to view their outside theater--soon to be host of the Texas Arts Festival in October. The grounds are beautifully kept. Also be sure to enjoy the outside sculptures near their art building. Great place to stop, have fun and take a much needed break from a long drive.

Located at the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram, Texas, Stonehenge II, with two Easter Island statues as well, was a surprising discovery. A short drive out of Kerrville will bring you to a great spot on the river where you can see art galleries, live plays, and great views of the river. Bring your camera, you'll take lots of pictures!

Interesting to see, as a drive by. There is a art gallery there also. Not a place to drive to for a morning. The gallery is free, people there were very nice.

This mini-Stoneghenge is fun. Pictures can be taken in such a way that people will think one has visited the original.
