Virginia's Radiant Moose

A life-size fiberglass moose stands in the front yard of a residence right next to the road. Pull over and take a photo/selfie with the moose. It is usually decorated for different holidays, such as July 4th, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc. Do not climb on or push/pull the moose. Radiant Moose also has a Facebook page.

[Bruce Jones, 10/07/2020]

The house is a converted 1910 one-room school, although that seems to have no connection to the moose, which arrived in 2018. Feb. 2021: Photo added.
