Yard of statuary.

This is way cooler than we thought it would be. Every house's lawn around it is completely devoid of any decoration whatsoever. Perfect!

The neighborhood knows: just give up.

Ok -- this was crazy cool, and definitely Roadside America worthy!

It's really the best way to have random lawn statues transcend their mass produced origins -- packed together tightly enough to obliterate the lawn.

Front yard filled with statues.

I just had to go see this for myself. The entire front lawn area is covered with all kinds of statues, although mermaids do appear to be a favorite. There are plenty of birds, a larger-than-life tortoise, an alligator, cannons, horses, an iguana, and some really neat looking light posts. Too much to take in on one visit.

Statue Covered Lawn

On Beacon Street in Paulsboro, NJ, is a typical small town home except that there a dozens of statues in the front, and I've been told more in the back, mostly nautical-themed statues, Poseidon, sea birds, sea horses and the like. What makes the house even more interesting is it is owned by siblings whose mother disappeared and the siblings, at least according to local legend, were responsible for her disappearance. They have been in continuous battles with their neighbors over the statues. I did not take a picture as it is a private residence but a coworker tells me that if you ask they will let you see all the statues.
