A special ceremony will be held Tuesday marking Alliance's takeover of the quirky Carhenge tourist attraction in the Nebraska Panhandle.

The local group overseeing the site, Friends of Carhenge, has given the site to the city. The group has been operating it since 1994.

The junk-car tribute to England's Stonehenge was built in 1987 by former Alliance resident Jim Reinders and several relatives as a memorial to his father. It sits on land the family once farmed two miles north of Alliance.

The city plans to revitalize and upgrade the property. The Friends of Carhenge still will be involved with the site.
