Find this Stonehenge replica in Rolla, Missouri, at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla) campus. The recreation, also known as UMR Stonehenge or “stubby Stonehenge” (for its squat appearance), is a half size partial replica of the ancient original, and located right on ole Route 66.
Work began on this Missouri roadside attraction in 1982 and the stone — 160 tons of Georgia granite — was acquired in 1983. Each piece of the Rolla Stonehenge was crafted by high pressure water jet equipment from the University’s lab. Work on this partial-recreation of Stonehenge finished in 1984 and was dedicated on June 20 (summer solstice) of that year.
