No. 47 Maryhill Stonehenge, Maryhill Washington

Built as the nation’s first World War I Memorial, a replica of Stonehenge lies at what was the original Maryhill town site. Believing the original in Great Britain was used for sacrifices, Hill constructed the replica in honor of the war dead of Klickitat County. Hill wanted the Memorial to serve as a reminder that “humanity is still being sacrificed to the god of war.” Additional Information About Stonehenge Memorial.

Nearby, the Klickitat County Veterans Memorial was erected in 1995 to honor those who have died in the service of their country since World War I. The project was a partnership between Maryhill Museum and the Klickitat County Veterans Association.
