Hobby Horse House - Home of Doll Lady

It is now just a regular house along Pine Island Rd. No hobby horses in sight.

Hobby Horse House - Home of Doll Lady

So, while certainly ONE of the many funky attractions worthy of Roadside America, this house recently sold (as the owner sadly passed away) and the hobby horses have been slowly disappearing (being sold, given away or miraculously walked on their own). See it soon before it transforms!

The hobby horses fill the front yard of Helen O'Rourke McClary, who calls herself "Doll Lady of Matlacha" and enjoys visitors.
