Visitor Tips and News About The Farnham Colossi
The Farnham Colossi now includes an awesome Hamburger Man. I met George Farnham for the first time today. He gave me a lengthy tour.
George was very excited about his new "Hamburger Man," which happens to be holding a cheeseburger. It is NOT even remotely related to Bob's Big Boy.[Kathy Kirkpatrick, 07/01/2011]
Pretty cool collection! There are a half dozen huge statues, as well as a Simpsons roller coaster ride (non-operational), the shark from Finding Nemo, and a giant apple covered in apple quotes. Nobody home when I stopped by.
If you're coming from 70, the directions are right on, but the address given only gets you about halfway to the Unger Store. Interesting detour for sure![zach, 09/07/2010]
Unique piece of Americana. Worth the drive, although very off the beaten path. A must see! P.S. Looked for the outhouses protesting the developments, but sadly didn't see any. Looks like the developments won.[Steve and Tiffany Schumer, 01/19/2010]
