In Calhoun, in the backyard of a Seventh Day Adventist church, stands a unique folk art garden called The ROCK Garden. It’s about an acre of miniature castles, homes, and such…all painstakingly built of pebbles, shells, ceramic tile, glass, and cement. There are about 50 structures of varying sizes gathered between plants and shrubs to look like a fairytale village. The tallest one is maybe four feet!
The garden was the brainchild of a church member, and he worked with other church volunteers to create it. Now, it is maintained by the same church on which is sits, but also other community members like scouts groups, other churches, and more.
Pull into the church and drive to the far back parking lot. The garden gets a regular flow of visitors each day. Don’t worry if you are not Seventh Day Adventist….no one from the church will mind. It’s a free garden for the public to enjoy without questions.
