Styrotown - Miniature Styrofoam Community

Styrotown is gone! Don't travel through the windy roads to look for it, though the town looks pretty nice.

When we arrived at the area late last night and couldn't find it we decided to call and see what was going on, and the lovely woman who was running Styrotown for about 15 years told us that she sold it in 2005, and the purchaser does not have it on display.

Styrotown - Miniature Styrofoam Community

This is a miniature town made from styrofoam, toothpicks and acrylic paint. it also has a carnival-like playground and hundreds of lights at night. The buildings are lit from inside and usually just have the front of the building. It is about 20 by 15 ft.
