AAA Editor Notes
Carhenge is 3.7 miles n. of Alliance at 2141 CR 59. This unusual roadside attraction makes for an interesting stop while driving through Nebraska's flat, rural landscape. Carhenge is a replica of the ancient monument in England known as Stonehenge. However, instead of monolithic rock, creator Jim Reinders used old cars spray painted gray, which he bolted together and half buried to resemble the circular pillars of Stonehenge. The heel stone is a 1962 Cadillac.
Carhenge was designed as a memorial to Reinders' father, who once lived on the farm where Carhenge was built. Other artists have contributed sculptures to the area as well. Two of the most notable are a colorful spawning salmon and a dinosaur.
