Greek's Playland and Stone Museum

Greek's Playland and Stone Museum has been closed for about a month due to a zoning disagreement with Monroe Township, and could use some support. We went to visit the site in July, and the gates were locked. We were lucky enough to run into Greek. He's hoping to reopen soon. What a great guy.

[Kim Newell, 08/22/2010]

The disagreement was patched up and Greek's Playland/Stone Museum reopened in May 2011.
