Porter Sculpture Park

IT'S BOTH WONDERFUL AND STRANGE

A Porter Sculpture Park Photo Essay
 

Just off Interstate 90 near Montrose, SD sits an outdoor sculptural park of whimsy and wonder visited by tourists from all over the world. Porter Sculpture Park is the home to more than 50 sculptures of dragons, dinosaurs, a giant hammer and more recycled metal brainchildren of sculptor Wayne Porter. Wayne is almost always onsite and eager to tell you the stories behind his collection that TIME magazine named one of the "Top 50 American Roadside Attractions."
