The Stonehenge Neighborhood
History of Stonehenge
| ||The Stonehenge community began in 1976. The large scultpure at the front entrance to the neighborhood was designed in 1978 by a local artist named George Solonevich, originally from the Soviet Union. Mr. Solonevich grew up in Russia, lived in a concentration camp in Germany during World War II, and eventually settled with his wife in the Roanoke Valley. He became well known for his realistic and moving works of art. |
