Here’s The Story Behind The Abandoned President Statues In Virginia
Virginia is home to its fair share of abandoned places: railroads, tunnels, and even entire towns. Yet none of these places is quite as alluring as the field of abandoned statues outside of Williamsburg. Originally part of Presidents Park, these 20-foot busts of former U.S. presidents now sit alone in a privately-owned field, where they’ve been since 2010. Here’s more on the fascinating yet undeniably eerie field of abandoned statues in Virginia. Please note: this attraction is not open for visitors, and the best way to view it is via this video footage.
