Subdivision Stonehenge

Field review by the editors.

Athens, Georgia

The origin of Subdivision Stonehenge, like its English ancestor, is obscured by the muck of time. The legend we've heard is that this Stonehenge was originally built in another, nearby location, possibly in the early 1990s, as a gateway for a housing subdivision named "Stonehenge," whose name is chiseled into one of its lintels. Its creators apparently thought that a monumental ruin was just the thing to entice home-buyers -- probably not the most well-thought-through of real estate strategies.

The subdivision didn't do well, and in the late 1990s the Stonehenge was moved for its own safety to its present location. Visitors are still leery, describing the spot as "feral" and the Stonehenge as even more of a ruin than it should be. Still, we forget that the original Stonehenge probably looked that way, too, before England cleaned it up for the tourists.
