|Storyland opened in the 1950s and closed in the mid-1980s. The statues were deteriorating in the weeds until around 2007. They were restored by the owner who entertains his grandchildren on the property. Trespassers are not welcome. However, some of the statues are visible behind the Country Originals Gift Shop which is located at the former entrance. The 18 foot tall Pied Piper was part of a much more elaborate castle-style entryway.|
|Story Book Forest
Story Book Forest opened in 1956. In 1982, it became part of Idlewild Park. These photos were taken in winter when the park was closed so the Jack in the Box was missing his arms and many other structures were under wraps. This place is truly a well-preserved wonderland. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.
This Humpty Dumpty statue is installed on the roof of the Country Kitchen. It was probably installed at a mini golf course originally. [map]
