Foamhenge is a full-size replica of Stonehenge made entirely out of styrofoam. It was originally located in Natural Bridge, Virginia, but is being relocated to Fairfax County, VA in early 2017. The structure was created by Mark Cline of Enchanted Castle Studio in 2004, with the pieces in astronomically correct positions. Cline has described Foamhenge as his greatest achievement.
It has become a tourist attraction, scoring an average 4 out of 5 stars from 221 reviews on TripAdviser as of October 2015[update]. By 2015, the foam structure had deteriorated markedly, to the point where some "stones" had split and were held in place with wooden supports.
Due to Natural Bridge becoming a state park in 2016, Foamhenge has been dismantled and is currently undergoing a transition to Fairfax County, VA. The structure will be relocated to Cox Farms, a family farm near Centreville in Northern Virginia, according to Cline. Cox Farms is a 116-acre family farm and business in Fairfax County, VA, less than an hour drive from Washington DC.
