Alabama’s Bamahenge Weathers the Storm

It all started with dinosaurs (yeah, I know, lots of things did). Wealthy Alabama businessman George Barber had commissioned artist Mark Cline to create some dinosaurs, a move guaranteed to add interest to one of Barber's properties. In 2006, Cline was on-site, directing repairs to the giant beasts when Barber broached the subject of Stonehenge. Not exactly all in a day's work, but Cline had previous experience building a Stonehenge replica from Styrofoam (and of course it's known as Foamhenge). By 2012, Barber had selected the ideal spot for his own Stonehenge:  the spacious grounds of Barber Marina, on the Intracoastal Waterway inland from Orange Beach, Alabama.
