Washington's Very Own Stonehenge! Sep 19, 2015
Along the Columbia River there is a memorial that was built to look like the Stonehenge in England. The artist wanted something to honor those from the area who were killed during WWI.

The original idea was to use local stone, however, when the rock proved unsatisfactory, the artist decided to use reinforced concrete. (The rough, hand-hewn looking texture was created by lining the wooden forms with crumpled tin.) Stonehenge Memorial was completed in 1929 and re-dedicated on Memorial Day of that year, when 14 local service men were honored by having their names placed on the pillars of the Memorial.
