Vasehenge: Giant Circle of Vases

Vasehenge has seen its better days. Cracked, chipped, crumbling, completely falling apart. One vase with a huge hole had a massive hive of yellow jackets in it. Be careful! We took advantage of this road trip stop to stretch and get a little exercise. We did an agility slalom run in and out of the vases -- we were, if you will, running the vases!

This stop definitely exceeded expectations -- even at night.

Not much parking at the Circle of Vases. Some of the vases looked vandalized.

Circle of Vases.

Giant Circle of Vases

While navigating the "Y" bridge (which was curious, but not terribly exciting, since we got there after dark), we came across a circle of giant vases! Each vase is taller than a person and is painted with a unique design. Perhaps a local art contest?

At the intersection of Pine Street and 40 Highway, you can pull over into what appears to be an empty car park and get out to tour the vases. We didn't see an explanation - so we made up our own!

Zanesville was once home of the World's Largest Vase, and has a famous local pottery industry.
