“Different and interesting”

Hartman Rock Garden
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Very glad we stopped to see this rock garden. The story behind it is inspiring. Be sure to pick up the brochure for it maps out and explains all the structures. We stayed awhile as we discovered we were missing things with our first walk through

Love this!!! Learned about it from a friend and couldn't believe I had never heard about it. So great for Kohler Foundation to help save things like this. Another similar experience an hour away is Loveland Castle. Both are just great examples of one person leaving a legacy.

Oh, my. A family had the vision to make this type of a garden in a neighbor - unbelievable!!!!! This is an 'American Folk Art Site' and worth the visit. Ben Hartman created this garden out of cement, concrete, metal and stone. One will view 'The White House' to "The Little Church Around the Corner (Church of Transfiguration in NYC).....My favorite was the 'Maxwell Coffee Cup & Sauce'.

To think someone did this makes it worthy of a stop. In all fairness when we went it was still under reconstruction where neighbor kids and other vandels took there turns. I was glad to see it was being restored. We'll try to make another stop this spring. If you're in Springfield, give a look. It'll be a memory

This was a free quick stop to look around. They accept donations, so bring a couple of bucks to put in.
