Jerry's Junk
A yard and house packed with big, odd items. Impressive; not a typical hoard. Jerry Lotz has a good eye for the crazy. Roadsideamerica.com Report... [02/26/2012]

Was closed and Jerry came out and told us some stories. Cool guy. Would have liked to buy him dinner and talk all day.

The owner was outside in his yard. He gave us a tour and a bit of history on many items in his collection. I think he enjoyed talking to us as much as we enjoyed seeing his collection.

Jerry's Junk is a mix of a private residence, an antique collection, and a junk yard -- all in a residential neighborhood. It spans several lots, but Jerry did come out and chat at length. He says he's selling off a bit more as "ya can't take it with you," and, unfortunately, his kids aren't interested in the legacy he's created. A chat with Jerry elevates this to a Must See.

Jerry's Junk House is amazing. Driving by we were totally enamored with it and had to stop. So much to look at; it's like a real-life hidden pictures puzzle. Lots of fun. If you're in Louisville you should stop! While you can't go inside, it is all visible from the street and there is no shortage of things to snap pictures of.
