2) Carhenge – Alliance Nebraska
Situated just north of Alliance Nebraska, in the Sandhills, is the unusual attraction called Carhenge. It’s a replica of England’s Stonehenge, but it’s made from car parts and entire cars. In the 1980’s Jim Reinders built it as a memorial tribute to his father. Like Stonehenge, this amazing site has a mysterious magical quality about it. It incorporates the same design with a circle, except made of cars. There are three standing trilithons inside the circle, as well as the heel stone, slaughter stone and two station stones. All are painted gray to replicate actual stone. The cars are vintage automobiles and there is also a “Car Art Preserve” on site. The completion was inaugurated with a dedication ceremony during the June 1987 Summer Solstice. Admission to this fascinating monolith-like site is free and it’s open all day, every day.
