Stonehenge Memorial, Washington

The Stonehenge Memorial was built by Samuel Hill to remember Klickitat County men who died in World War I. It is located near Maryhill overlooking the Columbia River.

Is this Salisbury Plain?

No, but this is Stonehenge.

The visitors show how tall Stonehenge is.

This altar stone was dedicated on July 4, 1918. Stonehenge was completed nearly eleven years later.

The thirteen names of the World War I dead  are mounted on interior stones.

Samuel Hill died two years after finishing Stonehenge and was buried nearby.
