Visitor Tips and News About Holy Land USA
Holy Land USA was opened to local residents for one day only, Sept. 14, 2014, to raise awareness of recent restoration efforts on its behalf. A mass was even held in its chapel. The attraction is still largely in disrepair, but progress is being made.[CK, 09/28/2014]
Bring hiking shoes and plenty of space on your camera. Also do a tick check when you get back to the car. It truly is awesome.[Shane, 01/23/2010]
Private property, still not open to the public!
Finally visited Holy Land. After reading about the potential danger, and seeing all the no trespassing and no parking signs I was a little nervous, more about coming back to find my car towed than anything else, so I kinda rushed through.
It might be good to come back in the fall as I think I probably missed some things hidden by foliage.[David Cholewa, 09/08/2008]
Holy Land USA is a constantly evolving wreck.
