was built as a memorial to Reinders' father who once lived on the farm
where Carhenge now stands. While relatives were gathered following the
death of Reinders' father in 1982, the discussion turned to a memorial
and the idea of a Stonehenge replica was developed. The family agreed to
gather in five years and build it. The clan, about 35 strong, gathered
in June 1987 and went to work. They held the dedication on the Summer Solstice
in 1987, with champagne, poetry, songs and a play written by the family.
