A quick note here about its location. We were here in July, 2016. According to the websites listed at the end the site was dismantled in August, 2016 and is currently being installed at Cox Farms in Centreville, VA. It is due to debut later this year (2017). Please do not go to the location that we state in this post as Foamhenge is no longer here.

While on our trip to Washington D.C. we stopped by Natural Bridge in Virginia. That was a spectacular view. In trying to find other nearby sites we ran across one of the more unusual places that we have found.

The picture above is what we ran across based upon our navigation to Foamhenge. It was not the easiest place to find but there were many people raving about this tucked away site.

After we negotiated a muddy field we found this secret entrance to Foamhenge sitting up on a hill. It is completely out of view from the roadway so you had to know where you were going or be a true adventurer.

This is the entry sign explaining the building of the original Stonehenge versus the Foamhenge version. It was built by Mark Cline.

After a climb up a muddy, soggy hillside I made it to the top to view this interesting piece of art.

This was originally built in 2004 and showed a lot of wear and tear by the time I was viewing it. As you can see between visitors and the weather it showed its age.

One of my favorite pieces of the art was the magical wizard. I believe it brings to light one theory that Stonehenge was built with magic.

 

 

This is an American oddity that must be seen to be appreciated. While you can’t see it as it was you can see it anew.
