Twistee Treat building.

Ice Cream Cone Building

I asked the lady that was working at the ice cream shop selling ice cream where they got this building from. She said that the owner called the manufacturers in Florida asking to buy one. The manufacturers said they didn't make them anymore and that there were a number of them around the US, and one in Pennsylvania that was unwanted.

The owner drove to Pennsylvania and found this building in a ditch, with every type of animal living in it. The building comes apart into 17 pieces. The owner hauled the building from Pennsylvania to Illinois on a trailer through a snow storm. I don't know how much of this is true, but this is what I was told.

Ice Cream Cone-shaped Building

Twistee Treat is a Giant Ice Cream Cone building that sells the best ice cream around. Also on the property is a surf guy, that was in the movie Flatliners. There is a life-size Pink Elephant and 2 other elephants that appear to be coming out of the Antique Mall. Inside the Antique Mall there is an original Muffler Man.

Futuro UFO House.

UFO Futuro House

Yea for the UFO House! It is super creepy... hidden partially behind some trees way far off the road. The driveway to the house has no trespassing signs on it and there's a little gate, of sorts, blocking the entrance. You can see it from IL-29 and if you pull over and stand up on your vehicle(or if you're 6'5 and over) you can see the small pond-lake in the valley between the house and the road...
