We went here on a whim and I am so glad we did. All of the recreations are so life like. It’s behind a church so it would be best not to visit during services on Saturday. It’s a beautiful place to visit and is...More

An easy trip off I-75, behind a 7th Day Adventist Church. Free, there is a donation box. A delightful folk art site with amazing buildings - the Coliseum, The Notre Dame, small houses, villages -- so many details. I plan on stopping here yearly on...More

This place was unexpected and pretty neat! We were blessed by the opportunity to meet the creators who, along with several volunteers, have been working on this for 11 years! Intricate.

We saw this garden advertised but had a lot of trouble finding it (it’s behind church). The time & effort put into building these works of art is amazing. The garden is quiet and relaxing to visit. Definitely worth seeing.

Our GPS had a tough time finding this place so I'm glad I didn't give up looking for it. Boy was it worth it! It was only when I saw a sign nailed to a post from the Seventh Day Adventist church that I realized...More

My girls loved visiting the garden. It's a beautiful backdrop for pictures or just a relaxing stroll. The rock work is amazing.

Pets might be allowed but I wouldn’t advise it as most of the pathways are quite narrow and they might do damage just maneuvering. There are shady areas with benches if you wanted to observe.

As a member of the church there, I can tell you that people are welcome even during services, as the traffic is not disturbing to us, with the garden and garden parking way behind the church itself. Visit, tour, pray... More
