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)
But 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)
According 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).
