Kutztown, Pennsylvania: Tall Gnome and Gnome Tree (Gone)

For gnome fans it was tough to beat two tall, hand-carved tree trunks, one transformed into a big gnome, the other into a gnome house with peeking inhabitants. Carved by the adjacent Bob's Auto Orphanage and Old Spokes Auto Museum.

I-78 exit 45. Drive south on Hwy 863/Golden Key Rd, then immediately turn right onto Old US 22. Drive one mile. The gnome tree will be on the right, the tall gnome slightly further on the left. The tall gnome is much easier to spot, outside the O. J. Fritz Showroom and Garage.
July 2020: Reported gone.

Tall Gnome and Gnome Tree

Tall Gnome finally succumbed to rot and has been cut down. Guess this attraction can be renamed Cut Down in Kutztown....

Tall Gnome and Gnome Tree

Gnome Tree is in the front yard of the brick building (with grey siding) diagonally across the street. A gentleman that works at OJ Fritz mentioned the gnome holding an owl was unfortunately likely to come down soon, considering it was rotting.

Gnome Totem Wooden Carving

A tall wooden sculpture of a gnome stands in a parking lot. Across the street, gnomes peek from a tall gnome house carved from a single tree trunk.
