The Easter Island Head is fairly well-kept except, unfortunately, the left side that is dented in. My pediatric practice recently moved to Kensington and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that our office is very close to it!

The Easter Island Head has moved from Wheaton to Kensington. It's at the Getty gas station on University Boulevard West at Lexington Street. The paint job looks new, but sadly, someone has bashed the head in on the right side.

Easter Island Head

The Easter Island Head has reappeared at a gas station in Kensington on University Blvd (heading east) just beyond where Connecticut Avenue splits off from University. He got a new paint job yesterday and looks just dandy and brand spanking new!

The Easter Island Head is in Silver Spring, MD. I know there are signs that say Wheaton all over there but it really is Silver Spring.

The head is quite impressive although a bit weather beaten as you can see from the picture. It makes a great backdrop for a picture if you want to look like you are somewhere in the South Seas, or if you like Tiki Bars or play in a surf band.
