Carhenge is a replica of England's Stonehenge located near the city of Alliance, Nebraska, in the High Plains region of the United States. Instead of being built with large standing stones, as is the case with the original Stonehenge, Carhenge is formed from vintage American automobiles, all covered with gray spray paint. Built by Jim Reinders, it was dedicated at the June 1987 summer solstice. In 2006, a visitor center was constructed to serve the site.To visit Carhenge and other attractions in Alliance, use our Alliance trip planner.

Worth the visit if you are passing through. Free to do and cool if you like interesting art. Lots of people stop by from all over the world. Only takes about 15 min if you are walking and taking pictures but it was still fun. My wife and I enjoy finding free places to visit on our travels and that is why we stopped by here.
I love the one car placed for visitors to decorate and take pictures with their own added creation to this part of the exhibit. Love the story of its creation to honor a man's father's memory and love of vintage cars now on permanent display! And you can buy a "key" to it's entire make-up, showing the year, make and model of each car displayed and their placement location in the exhibit!
