Tennessee Stonehenge

I call this the Tennessee Stonehenge.

It is a partially built abandoned nuclear power plant in the Phipps Bend Industrial Park, near Surgoinsville, eastern Hawkins County, Tennessee. The base blocks you see are over head in hieght.  The overall height is probably 3 stories plus.

What is fun about this structure is if you stand in the middle, 36 27'48"N, 82 48'13"W, you can talk and  hear an echo of your voice very clearly, even if you whisper.

I did a little levels and curves to bring out the sky.

WOW! Most interesting, John. I wonder why I've never heard of this before!

Now that's a clever to be able to do!

I've been places here where there are 'whispering seats' ... curved and if you sit at one end you can talk to a person sitting at the other end about twenty or so feet away. Never imagined being able to do it in a holey structure though. I wonder how it works?
