About 1500 BCE - Original Stonehenge, Salisbury Plain (England). "One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones and sits at the centre of the densest complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds."
1918 - Stonehenge, Maryhill, Washington (USA). "A full-size replica of Stonehenge (England) built on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River by Sam Hill [1857-1931], a road builder, as a memorial to those who died in World War I. Not completed until 1930. Hill was buried in 1931 at the base of the bluff, but, because he wished to be left alone, there is no easy path to his resting place. The project began when Hill was mistakenly informed that the original Stonehenge had been used as a sacrificial site. He thus constructed his replica as a reminder that 'humanity is still being sacrificed to the god of war.'" Hill also constructed the Peace Arch (qv) on the US/Canadian border.

Summer 2003 - "Stonefridge: A Fridgehenge," Santa Fe, New Mexico (USA). Another modern take on Stonehenge was once constructed out of junked refrigerators, known as 'Fridgehenge'. The site was created by the artist Adam Jonas Horowitz. The site no longer exists, all fridges have been removed after a complaint, confirmed on 5 August 2008.
February 2005 - Stonehenge Aotearoa, Carterton, Wairarapa region (New Zealand). A modern adaptation aligned with the astronomy seen from the Antipodes. Built by the Phoenix Astronomical Society from wood and sprayed concrete.
June 2005 - British Foamhenge (England?). A full size, correctly aligned replica made from carpet tubes and polystyrene was constructed for a UK TV show entitled "Stonehenge Live" broadcast in June 2005. The positions of each stone were accurately plotted using RTK GPS, which has centimetric accuracy. The replica quickly became known as "Foamhenge". It was removed soon after filming, and the 'stones' remain in storage (as of January 2006).

Date? - Stonehenge microstructure, National University of Singapore (Singapore). The smallest 3D replica of Stonehenge. Measuring only 80 micrometres in diameter, the Stonehenge microstructure was created by a process called silicon micromachining which uses a high-energy proton beam writer to produce 3-D microshapes and structures of high structural accuracy on the surface of materials such as silicon.
1995 - Stonehenge Replica, Hamilton (New Zealand). Built by Graeme Caims out of 41 refrigerators.
Date? - Manhattanhenge, New York City, New York (USA).

This phenomenon is known as Manhattanhenge.
Date? - MITHenge, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA). The sun shines directly down the Infinite Corridor twice each year.
