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.

While the school has since changed names from University of Missouri-Rolla to Missouri University of Science and Technology, this Stonehenge still stands. Much like its more famous counterpart across the pond. If you can’t make it to England be sure to visit this recreation in Missouri! It’s a fun stop on your road trip across the state or on a Route 66 road trip in Missouri!
