Owner description: Three miles east of Maryhill Museum of Art, just off HWY 14 and near the original Maryhill town site, stands a full-scale replica of England's Stonehenge built by museum founder Sam Hill. Stonehenge Memorial was built as the nation’s first WWI memorial. It was dedicated in 1918 to the servicemen of Klickitat County, Washington, who died in the service of their country during the Great War; it was completed in 1929 and re-dedicated on Memorial Day of that year, when 14 local service men were honored by having their names placed on the pillars of the Memorial. Samuel Hill’s crypt is located a short walk southwest of Stonehenge on a bluff overlooking the river. The site is open daily from 7 a.m. to dusk. Admission is free.

A very cool little place to visit that is kind of off the beaten path. We followed the Columbia River out to the coast and came upon this. A memorial to men that had gone to war. Very cool architecture and building of this. Views from here were absolutely gorgeous.

We were visiting from the UK on a road trip, where we had visited the real Stonehenge several times, so when we heard about this place we had to go. It is a replica, more in homage than in accuracy. It was fitting to visit at this time 100 years after the WW1 sacrifices it was built to remember.

Just a few points...
1. it is not a full size replica (despite it saying so) - it is about 60% full size.
2. the original was made of stones transported hundreds of miles rather than concrete blocks carved with machinery
3. it is rather to even and ordered to fully replica the original Stonehenge

BUT having said that. It is interesting, and worth calling in to see if you are in the area. And it is a worthwhile memorial. And there are spectacular views of the river gorge.

So definitely worth it.

Beautiful location over looking Columbia River, Oregon wheat fields, Columbia Hills, Maryhill Park & orchards, truck gardens, and vineyards.
Memorial for locals who fought & died in WW1. Replica of the real Stonehenge in England. They have added a nice memorial to locals from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, & the
current conflict.
