Steel Drum Family: Not too talkative...but don't mind posing for pictures.

Strange Steel Drum Family

I grew up in this area. While there is a sign near the Drum Family for Buckeye Acres, there is no connection. Buckeye Acres is located on the same road, a family-owned produce farm open year-round. The steel drum family was designed and built by J.C. Carter, who also lives on that road. He has built many creations from scrap metal.

Buckeye Acres Steel Drum Family

Steel family of metal drums and five-gallon pails! Absolutely delightful details from scrap metal parts. Head straight down Hwy. 13 about 10.5 miles and they are on the side of the road. There is a place to pull in and park.
