Squidward's House.

Squidward's House

Sitting in a wide, vacant field along Route 5 near Palatine Bridge stands a 15-foot-high wooden model of Squidward's house from SpongeBob SquarePants. It appeared in mid-2019, and was designed and built by Oliver Nugent for his friend Adam Vroman -- apparently purely just for fun. Definitely a surprise on such a boring road.

Under similar creative influence, a 25-foot-tall Squidward House was built in Wadena, Iowa, also in 2019.
