Road To Branson: Stonehenge in Rolla, MO

For all of us in Chicago, the historic Stonehenge is thousands of miles and a long plane ride away.

Or maybe not? Well…..PRETTY much.

It was brought to my attention that, on the way to Branson, Missouri, I could stop and see a small-scale recreation of the ancient Megalith outside of London. The Missouri University of Science and Technology created the replica, which sits on the northwest corner of their campus in Rolla. It’s just a short jog off the journey if you find yourself heading to Branson, and it’s a pretty neat site to see.

The designers even created a Polaris window. If you stand in the right spot at night, you can see the North Star through a window in one of the large stones. You can read more about the replica Stonehenge HERE. Check out some photos I snapped….
