“a stonehenge that's a little closer”
The Missouri S&T Stonehenge is a partial reconstruction of Stonehenge, the ancient megalith located on Salisbury Plain 75 miles Southwest of London. It stands for many things; a lasting monument to man's drive for knowledge and engineering, the largest monument to ever be cut with a waterjet, and a link from the past into the modern. It was dedicated on June 20, 1984 or the summer solstice, at the site of the northwest edge of campus. Approximately 160 tons of granite were used in the monument. The rock was cut to the proper dimensions by Missouri S&T's Waterjet equipment.
Ditto Ginger Risner above. It was great because most of it was okay for the kids to run around and climb on. Good stop for younger energetic kids to get some wiggles out!
This is a neat little stop especially if you're a history/astronomy nerd. It's only half scale, but it will open your eyes to the enormity of the real thing!
Right off the highway quick stretch and back in car ,,fun quick car stop. !
Exited highway and my GPS led me right past it headed back to highway. That was the prefect way to see it, just driving past. Don't really see that it's worth a stop.
Nice stop to stretch legs!
Not exactly where the directions take you! Cool stop nonetheless!
That was really pretty dumb but exactly what I expected. A nice break in the monotony of I-44
Nice location. Very relaxing. Stopped to see the Stonehenge and ended up eating under some trees.
We stopped here om our Roadtrip for a nice little picnic and to stretch our legs. This was fun to see!
Went and it looked nothing like the real one and only half the size a little disappointing but good place to stretch legs.
