Stonehenge for Sale!

posted by Mark D. Roberts

Most people have heard of Stonehenge, the famed monument in England, a few kilometers north of Salisbury. Tourists from throughout the world flock to this unique reminder of an ancient world. (Photo: Stonehenge)

StonehengeBut now you can have Stonehenge in your front yard (if it’s pretty big, that is).

No, I’m not talking about the original Stonehenge in England, but, rather, the so-called Stonehenge II. This version of the monument, which is 90% as wide and 60% as tall as the original, can be found in a field in Hunt, Texas, a small town in the Hill Country. But the owners of the field are planning to sell the property, and are looking for someone who wants their version of Stonehenge. (Photo: The Texas version of Stonehenge)

stonehenge-texas-8.jpgAccording to the Kerrville Daily Times, the owners of Stonehenge II are in negotiations with the Hill Country Arts Foundation about moving the faux-monument to their property. But should the deal fall through, you might just have a shot. Just think of how impressed your neighbors would be if you were to have Stonehenge in your front yard! Think of what would happen to property values! (Or, maybe not think about that.)

In the meanwhile, if you find yourself in the Texas Hill Country near San Antonio, don’t missed Stonehenge II. There’s nothing like it (well, almost nothing).

    Matches: I try to mix it up a bit, especially on the weekends.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? Conclusions
In this series on the death of Jesus, I have presented four different perspectives on why Jesus had to die: Roman, Jewish, Jesus’, and Early Christian. I believe that each of these points of view has merit, and that we cannot fully understand the necessity of Jesus’ death without taking them all

Sunday Inspiration from the High Calling
Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 2
The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
