Elberta, Alabama: Knights in the Woods

Statues of four knights lurk in the woods, possibly under the command of whoever deployed dinosaurs on the same road.

Letterman Rd, Elberta, AL
South on CR 95 from Hwy 98, then right on Fish Trap Rd at the Barber Mariner sign and follow to the next Marina sign where you would take a left, heading south. A few miles up, you will see the dinosaurs. Keep going to the roundabout, take the second exit toward the marina (not to the business). You will see the knights on the right side. There is a small parking lot behind the knights where you can park and easily access them via small trails, rather than needing to park along the roadside.

Take the third exit at the roundabout. You'll see the knights to your right. Take first right. Take first right again into the parking lot. The path to the woods is easy to miss.

Just before you get to the Barber Marina, in the gardens you can seek out knights in the woods. You need to keep you eyes peeled as they blend in with the foliage. There are three sets of knights.

The knights are not as interesting as the dinosaurs that are right down the road, but worth a look.... Great detail and a lot of time went into them. They stand in the woods by the marina like guardians, and if you are not careful you will drive by them.

Knights in the Woods

Right up the road from the dinosaurs in the woods are life-size statues of four knights in the woods. Locals say that it is the same person who placed the dinosaurs that put in the knights. And this person may be the owner of Barber Marina and all of the land that surrounds it.

Not a big deal. There are no signs for these, nor are they advertised as an attraction, but none the less, are an awkward and unique attraction. One interesting note about these are that as secluded as these things are, they are not vandalized or damaged.
