Carhenge, Nebraska


Was on a road trip to South Dakota and taking the scenic way. As I was driving through Nebraska, I suddenly saw a sign for Carhenge (in Alliance, NE). I remember hearing about this, threw on the brakes and turned my car to check this place out.

Carhenge is a structure that replicates Stonehenge, just with the use of cars:

“Thirty-nine automobiles were placed to assume the same proportions as Stonehenge with the circle measuring approximately 96 feet (29m) in diameter. Some autos are held upright in pits five feet deep, trunk end down, while other cars are placed to form the arches and welded in place. All are covered with gray spray paint. The honor of depicting the heel stone goes to a 1962 Caddy.”

More on their site.

It was such a cool thing to walk around. So many cars, the perfect layout to appear just like Stonehenge, but with a little bit different feel. They they also have other cars they’ve added to the collection for different displays. Great way to get a break on a road trip and see something totally out of the ordinary.
