Skellville hoard/collection.


It didn't look too promising at first, but we're glad we decided to explore Skellville. And getting the chance to talk with owner Brad made this odd collection of old signs, rusted vehicles, skeletons, cement sculptures, religious and pop culture icons all the more curious and worthwhile.

Avoid this place! We stopped by just to take a gander and were trapped in our vehicle by the owner, Brad, who tongue-lashed us with biblical rantings for at least 25 minutes. The most uncomfortable experience of my life!

The most memorable attractions are sometimes the most terrifying -- and it sounds as if you'll never forget Skellville.

In addition to Skellville, which alone is fantastic, the collection of amazing stuff is beyond belief. Brad, the owner, is very passionate about his "collection" and brings it to life with stories. He was happy to show us around, answer all of our questions, and give us his good blessings. Skellville is very creative and fun, but the store and Brad's collection will blow you away!

Skellville sits in the back yard of Piedt and Son.

So fun to stop and walk through Skellville. The kids loved finding all of the skeletons.
