Cute little town, easily accessible off 79. Parking is to your right, at the Pittsburgh Street/Grand Ave intersection. The saucer is to your left (We had to circle the block once, as the saucer was hidden by shrubbery).

In his garage museum, retired plumber Barney Smith continues to amaze with the still-growing display of his personal toilet seat artwork. He entertains visitors from all over the world. Barney turns 94 on May 25, 2015, and while he may have slowed down a bit, he's still creating story-telling masterpieces on toilet seat lids. None are for sale -- they're all hanging here.
Happy birthday Barney![RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 05/25/2015]
