From castles to cathedrals, and even the Coliseum in Rome, take a stroll through the Calhoun Rock Garden and be transported to places around the world and deep into your imagination.
The garden sits behind the Calhoun Seventh-day Adventist Church. It was started in 2007 by DeWitt “Old Dog” Boyd, and has been a family endeavor by Boyd, his children, and their children.
The Garden was created to promote community, provide a place of healing and respite and enjoy the beauty which God has created. – The Garden Facebook page
Each structure is made out of pebbles and shells, and overlooks a small creek.
As you walk among the 50 structures throughout the garden, you can visit places like Notre Dame Cathedral, castles and small villages.
Admittedly, the church is a bit off the beaten path, but your GPS should have no trouble getting you there. When you get to the church, drive around to the back corner of the parking lot and you will see the small signs directing you to the driveway to the garden.
HOURS: The garden is open from dawn to dusk.
ADMISSION: Free to walk through, but donations are greatly appreciated.
