Burned down in 1989



A converted grain warehouse, Stonehenge ruled the area and at times, the entire region for years. Top local talent and up and coming recording bands as well as the "whatever happened to" bands graced and insulted the stage. At it's peak, 3 full floors were in use with a deli downstairs but most bands used the 4th floor for other pleasures!

The stage was famous for bumped heads (low beams and tiny entrance door, but did not include Baden Rhode) and the house Klipsch Sound System was loved by some and cursed by others!


The Pride of St. Louis AND Lebanon IL!
