Rancho Shazam.

Rancho Shazam

Also wrongly called "Tin Man Stonehenge" on RA, this attraction is actually known by the artist as Rancho Shazam and he calls himself "Captain Marble." Lee Greenberg (Captain Marble) is a friendly dude, and you can usually find him if you venture into the property. He'll happily give you a guided tour. Some of the notable pieces he's made/collected are Foam Henge (giant objects made of foam), a floating bicycle, a tin man statue, and a phone booth with a Superman suit hanging inside. The little white puffball of a dog, Lambchop, may accompany you on the tour.

Stonehenge megaliths.

Tin Man Stonehenge

On a narrow road orphaned by the adjacent freeway, the owner(s) of a row of private homes has uniquely augmented the property. There's an arrangement of Stonehenge-like foam megaliths, an imposing fake boulder pile, and assorted junk sculptures, gags and yard art.

A child's yellow playground slide sticks out from the second story of one building; a bicycle balances on a wire between two other buildings. The junk sculpture Tin Man's sign still offers to provide directions for 5 cents. Perhaps this is because the only traffic here would be lost travelers trying to find an entrance to Hwy 101...

Other signs offer "Marriage Counseling" and "Bankrupcy (sic) Advice since 2010." We hope this is because Tin Man Stonehenge has skillfully avoided such a fate!

Tin Man Stonehenge.

Tin Man Stonehenge

The tin man, Stonehenge-like pillars, a bicycle on a tightrope, slides to nowhere and giant boulders are just a few things to be found here. You can see it at the end of Lucky Drive, near the 101 freeway. Heading South, take the Lucky exit, turn right on Nellen to Lucky.
