Mini Stone Henge in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- When you drive down Kennewick Avenue,  you may wonder about a mini Stonehenge in a man's front yard.

Ed Mays built the scale model replica in his front yard he says in honor of the men who were able to build the European mystery without power tools or lifting equipment.  

Mays built the replica himself when he couldn't figure out what to do with an old rose garden in his front yard.  

It's about 15% of the size of the actual Stonehenge in England.

Interestingly enough, even with all the interest he has in the mystery there, so much to build this one in his yard, he's never been.

"I've been to the one down on the river here and on the Columbia river, but the one in England south of Whales I've never been to it.   But it's a very interesting story and fascinating to me," he said.

"People definitely talk about it, when friends come over they're like, what's that, does he have sacrifices, no it's Stonehenge, okay, okay," said neighbor Steven Lodahl.

Mays's version of the English phenomena has a little of his own taste on it.  He put this smiling, lit up rock in the middle to make it his own.
