Beaumont, Texas: Flanagan's Junk Barn

Begun by owner/artist Lonnie Flanagan in the 1990s, it's a building now completely enveloped in old junk. The barn is so densely wrapped that it easily survived Hurricanes Ike and Rita while neighboring buildings collapsed.

Flanagan's Junk Barn

The building is visible from both directions of MLK, a divided highway. It looks like mostly old car parts. Interesting if you are driving by, but not worth going out of your way.

[Kwinn, 04/06/2017]

Owner Lonnie Flanagan has been chaining, roping, and wiring car parts, lawn ornaments, lights, signs, and random junk to the outside of his barn for decades. He claims it's a museum where everything is visible from the outside. He also recently expanded his art to junk sculptures, which are exhibited in an adjacent field.
