Tucked away in the flat lands of Alliance, Nebraska lies a unique sculpture park made of vintage cars known as Carhenge. The artist, Jim Reinders, along with the help of family and friends built the towering anomaly as a memorial to his father in 1987. Painted a dull grey and buried in precise measurements Mr. Reinders recreated Stonehenge. Located next to Carhenge is the brightly painted Car Art Reserve, the artwork spray painted on these vehicles are a fascinating mix of random doodles, and quick philosophical quotes. The Stonehenge replication is open everyday with no admission charge (they do ask for donations) and during the summer months a small gift shop is open with an assortment of fun souvenirs to purchase.
This is not the first replicated Stonehenge I have visited but it is definitely the most unusual. The park is small, child/stroller friendly and doesn’t take too much time to explore, but if you’re in the neighborhood I would consider it a must see. Another Stonehenge replication I explored can be found here.
