  • Folk Art Garden


In addition to the acre of beautiful flowers and greenery in "The Garden," there is the must-see Folk Art, consistng of more than 50 diminutive buildings. The structures, all crafted from tiny stones, pebbles, shells, odd pieces of broken glass, and china, rocks, ceramic tile, cement, wire and other materials, are designed to imitate their larger counterparts. There are wee-sized churches, houses, castles, a monestary, cathedrals such as a structure modeled after the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France, with stained-glass windows; and minikin porcelain figures of people and animals, some as small as two inches. A real-people-sized music pavliion towers over it all, added to provide a place for Christian music performance. 

"The Garden" is open for self-guided tours from dawn to dusk. There is no fee. "The Garden" is simply a gift to the community and tourists, built by volunteers.
