Junk Sculptures

The guy's yard is filled with random items. They were all overgrown with weeds to the point you could not see them very well. We walked all over his property and driveway. Across the street are some more, but overgrown as well. I assume he's old, now, and doesn't have the energy to keep it up anymore. Unless you're already driving by, not worth a special trip.

The junk has crossed the road and is now bigger than the original side.

Pieces of art greet you when you go around the corner heading towards Hazleton as you are leaving Beaver Meadows. These sculptures have been around for as long as I can remember. They have extended to the opposite side of the road in recent years. Unfortunately, I have no background info on these neat sculptures.

Junk Sculptures - 9/11 and Halloween?

I recently discovered some strange junk sculptures near Hazleton, PA. Right outside of Beaver Meadows, there's some sort of sculpture about 9/11. And directly across the street, the woods is riddled with cement and junk combinations, a lot of them Halloween-themed. I didn't have time to explore them all, but hopefully someone has more information. On the map, it is near the small pond, shown on Google maps, right outside the town.
