Look carefully at where Marlo is reading!
Where do you think she is?
Now if you have looked carefully, and have heard of Stonehenge before,
you might have noticed something different about this photo.
The surrounding area is all brown!
That is because this Stonehenge is in Maryhill, Washington!
Here is the description from the Washington Stonehenge website:
“On a lonely bluff overlooking the Columbia River and the town of Maryhill, Washington, is a full-size replica Stonehenge. An almost identical copy of the more famous English Stonehenge, it was built by Sam Hill, a road builder, as a memorial to those who died in World War I. Dedicated in 1918, the memorial wasn’t completed until 1930. Hill passed away soon after he finally saw his masterpiece completed.”
The actual Stonehenge in England looks like this.
The two Stonehenges really look quite similar!
I also learned something new today because I didn’t know that we had a
replica here in Washington State!
Thanks Marlo for helping me learning some WA State geography!
What do you think about this replica of Stonehenge?
Have you ever visited Stonehenge in either Washington or England?
Did you read there???
