The Columbia Gorge's Own "Stonehenge"

 

Built as a war memorial for locals lost in World War I, Stonehenge stands high on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River, just outside Goldendale, Washinton. Based on the original Stonehenge in England, it was built in 1918 by Samuel Hill, an original settler of this area and appears as the original might have before it was ravaged by centuries. Just after the war, Hill had visited the original Stonehenge where he heard the theory that the structure was originally built as a place for pagan human sacrifices. Upon hearing the theory, he stated: "After all our civilization, the flower of humanity still is being sacrificed to the god of war on fields of battle." And so came the inspiration for the memorial.

Hill's own tomb sits just below Stonehenge, overlooking the magnificent Columbia River Gorge.
