There is a half scale Stonehenge in Rolla, Missouri on the campus of Missouri University of Science and Technology.
Saguaro Henge in Tucson’s Pima Prickly Park is a circle of eight saguaro cacti on a slight mound. It can be seen from the road or visited on foot.
Oh wow I really love this one, thank you for sharing!!
It’s pretty neat, and near the freeway, for roadtrippers. Thanks for posting!
Check out Columcille in Bath, Pennsylvania. This private, open to the public , Park is quite beautiful with a beautiful henge. Also, Don’t miss the Gate of Thor, a 20-30 foot high huge natural stones. Love Atlas Obscura!
Geoegia Guidestones in Elbert County, Ga., an out of the way granite monument inscribed with guidelines

There used to be a Fridgehenge in Santa Fe, NM – constructed out of abandoned refrigerators on top of a landfill – but unfortunately the fence didn’t keep out the graffiti artists, and there were safety considerations, so it was dismantled. I’m sure there are photos out there somewhere, but I don’t have any …
I have a set I took just a couple of months before it was dismantled but I’ll need to find the hard drive they’re on and optimize them to post. It might be a few days but I’ll look into it.
Would love to see those if you get a chance!
Though it’s not a TRUE henge, there’s a public art installation in Dublin, OH called “Field of Corn,” often referred to as “Cornhenge.” It is over 100 person-sized concrete ears of corn. It’s actually a pretty impressive sight!
There used to be a Foamhenge in central Virginia, but I’ve heard it’s been moved.
I’m watching a Great Courses on pre-European North America, and apparently the civilizations that lived around 1700 BCE made henges, woodhenges.
It’s around what’s touted to be the very first city in North America, Poverty Point, LA. It’s set up like Burning Man, I wonder if the creators of that gathering did it on purpose.
