Stonehenge WWI Memorial

On a windswept promontory at the brink of the Columbia River, is Stonehenge, modelled after the celebrated ruins in Wiltshire, England. It consists of a circular group of concrete slabs supported on pillars, which enclose five immense arches and a single horizontal slab. A blonze plaque, inlaid in this slab, dedicates the monument to the “Memory of the soldiers and sailors of Klickitat County who gave their lives in defense of their country.”
