Money Needed To Move Texas Stonehenge

For more than 20 years, the “Texas Stonehenge” has been a tourist spot in Kerr County.   The ring of stucco formations sits on a field on FM 1340, but now — piece by piece — Stonehenge is moving from Hunt to the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram. Texas Stonehenge was created by Al Sheppard, a former Dallas hotel owner who died 16 years ago. His nephew wants to sell the land, but the potential buyer said “no thanks” to the stone structure.

For now, most of the stones are lying in a field in Ingram while the rest will be moved from Hunt in about a week. The Arts Foundation still needs to raise about $25,000 to complete the work. To help out, click here.

    Dallas/FT Worth is a great place to move to.

    I just found out about this place! I instantly was planning a trip, until I realized the issue. Personally, I’d have honored my father/grandfather’s work and kept the dang thing in the family. Chop off the part that has the stones and sell the rest. Make a contribution to society (even if one of entertainment), instead of “donating” it.
