Carhenge, Alliance

#1 of 8 in Things to do in Alliance
Carhenge is a replica of England's Stonehenge located near the city of Alliance, Nebraska, in the High Plains region of the United States. Instead of being built with large standing stones, as is the case with the original Stonehenge, Carhenge is formed from vintage American automobiles, all covered with gray spray paint. Built by Jim Reinders, it was dedicated at the June 1987 summer solstice. In 2006, a visitor center was constructed to serve the site.

  • I love the one car placed for visitors to decorate and take pictures with their own added creation to this part of the exhibit. Love the story of its creation to honor a man's father's memory and love of vintage cars now on permanent display! And you can buy a "key" to it's entire make-up, showing the year, make and model of each car displayed and their placement location in the exhibit!
