CARHENGE – celebrating myth in NEBRASKA

 

Carhenge, along Country Road 59 near the city of Alliance, Nebraska, is a replica of Stonehenge, England. Built by Jim Reinders as a memorial to his father, is formed by American cars all painted in gray spray paint; it was dedicated at the June 1987 Summer solstice.

Frequently used in popular culture, it has made appearances in movies, Omaha by Dan Mirvish, on books covers, Velocity by Nancy Krygowski, and mentioned in travel books, 1,000 Places to See in the USA & Canada Before You Die.
