Stonehenge Memorial

Maryhill, Washington

Along Hwy 14

Influential entrepreneur and roads advocate Sam Hill commissioned the construction of the Stonehenge Memorial as the country's first memorial to honor soldiers who died during World War I. The reinforced concreted structure was designed to resemble how Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England must have originally looked. The memorial was constructed on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River in Maryhill, a village named after Hill's wife and daughter. His cremains were interred here.

The memorial is now part of the Maryhill Museum of Art. Memorials to soldiers from the county killed in later wars have been added.
