Standing as a silent sentry above the Columbia River, Maryhill’s Stonehenge serves as a memorial for the 14 brave young men from Klickitat County, who served and died during World War I. More than just names and basic information, this book details their service and sacrifice. Included is a short biography of the visionary behind Stonehenge, Samuel Hill. Also included is a soldier from the community who was inadvertently overlooked during construction.
