There’s Something Eerily Beautiful Hiding In A Rural Virginia Field
It’s like something from the Twilight Zone: abandoned statue heads of the U.S presidents in a rural field near Croaker, Virginia. It sounds too bizarre to believe, but we’ve got the pictures here to prove it. Years ago, a Houston artist made plans to create President Park, a ten-acre outdoor park in Williamsburg. The park closed after only six years, and the statues were moved out to this land in rural Virginia. Take a look at these photos, and you’ll agree this collection is eerily beautiful.
