Stonehenge-Like Structure in Illinois is A Hidden Gem
Save the trip to the United Kingdom to see Stonehedge, there is a look-a-like in the Galena Township in Illinois.
The Stonehenge-like structure known as the Council Ring sits on Horseshoe Mound and is one of those unique places in Illinois that you just have to see to believe. The ring is also aligned with the summer and winter solstices and there are also telescoped around the circle so that visitors can see some of the amazing views from up high on the horseshoe mound.
Located at the eastern gateway to the historic city of Galena, the nearly 200 acre Horseshoe Mound offers the public opportunities to enjoy one of the most scenic properties in all of northern Illinois.
It seems that when you get to the top of the mound there are some amazing views to look at. It would be a nice weekend away to take a day to travel and hike up this mound and hang out at this circle.
