Kutztown, Pennsylvania: Tall Gnome and Gnome Tree

For gnome fans it's 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.
10408 Old US 22, Kutztown, PA
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.

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.
