Stonehenge II is a concrete sculpture in the Texas Hill Country, US, built in homage to the original Stonehenge monument. Stonehenge II was conceived by Al Shepperd and built with the help of his friend and neighbor, Doug Hill. Originally located on FM 1340 west of Hunt, Texas, Stonehenge II now resides on the campus of the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram, Texas (78025).

According to the signage at the site: "Stonehenge II is not a replica; it is about 2/3 the size of the original, and it is not oriented to the sun, as is the original. Rather, it is Hill's impression, in steel and concrete, of the nearly 5,000 year old circle of stones on the Salisbury Plain."
In addition to the constructed and real stones comprising the monument, there are also two fabricated Moai, or Easter Island (Rapa Nui/Isla de Pascua) statues located at the Hill Country Arts Foundation. These imitation Moai are made of the same material as the Stonehenge II stones.,

  • Local ranchers brought Stonehenge to their community and did a phenomenal job of it. Got there about noon one day after Solstice. Perfect alignment, including aiming stones. If you take the time to understand what this is you'll be really impressed. Most of the people supporting the attraction know the people who built it and brought it to this small town, but don't care about it's significance. Makes a nice artsy display in front of their seriously nice Performing Arts Center. Fun to play with the Easter Island figures the ranchers carved by hand and donated as well. Wonderfully reproduced and recreated, but you could go right past it and never see it. Ingram, Tx, you have no idea how lucky you are.
  • Beautiful place. I enjoyed seeing Stonehenge II. I love that the owner felt the need to do ate these wonderful pieces. There is also a wonderful spot to cool off just down the hill.
