New Tourist Spot in the Flint Hills

MATFIELD GREEN, Kan. (AP) The Flint Hills has a new tourism destination spot.

On one of the highest hills in the middle of nowhere is a minimalist version of Stonehenge. The Wichita Eagle reports that the Walk in Peace Ranch commissioned the environmental sculpture from artist Steve Murillo.

It features four limestone pillars quarried near Winfield. They stand 13 to 15 feet tall and weigh an average of 10,000 pounds each.

The artwork is a tribute to wildlife, indigenous people, the past, the four stages of life and the four directions.

On Saturday, the public is invited to the 200-acre Walk in Peace Ranch in the heart of Chase County. It’s located not far from the site of a 1931 plane crash that killed Notre Dame coach Knute Rockne and seven others.
