Our Experience

Then and Now: A Baton Rouge Icon Restored
Long before Stonehenge Capital claimed the proud corinthian columns at 236 Third Street, the familiar facade served as the foundation for Baton Rouge's original banking institution.

As a national leader in specialty finance, Stonehenge has invested in a variety of small businesses, real estate developments, historic rehabilitation projects, renewable energy installations and film and entertainment productions in more than 30 states across the country, generating various state incentives across the United States without having a single incentive recaptured, disallowed, or forfeited. Our investments support a variety of financing needs in small towns, rural communities and major urban centers across the country. Stonehenge employs over 50 professionals, who foster collaboration by sharing their expertise and relationships across business lines, industries and states.

With main offices in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Columbus, Ohio and six additional offices across the country, Stonehenge Capital is equipped with the people and resources necessary to do more with financial capital on a national scale. By doing business differently and offering the kind of fresh thinking that leads to innovation, Stonehenge sets the example for how a successful capital investment firm should operate.
