is a full-scale replica of the ancient, Neolithic structure whose massive stones, broken and fallen from age, have stirred the imagination for centuries. It lies near the town site of Maryhill, Washington, three miles east of the Maryhill Museum of Art.
Stonehenge Memorial was built as a monument to heroism and peace by Maryhill Museum founder Sam Hill. Guided by leading authorities on archaeology, astronomy, and engineering, Hill combined their knowledge to duplicate, as nearly as possible, the original size and design of the ancient Neolithic ruin in England.
Stonehenge Memorial, the nation’s first WWI memorial, 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.
