“the world's largest scrap metal sculptures”
The Enchanted Highway features the World's Largest Metal Sculptures produced by artist Gary Greff. Gary is a native of Regent, North Dakota. He was a teacher and a school principal and had never done any art work or welding prior to 1989. He then began dreaming of ways to bring people and businesses to the small community of Regent -- fearing the town would someday die if it relied solely on farming. A hay bale strongman built by a farmer inspired him. He watched people pull off the road to snap photos of the oddity. He wondered how many people would stop for huge metal sculptures. He began designing, welding, and painting. The Tin Family was erected in 1991, Teddy Rides Again in 1993, Pheasants on the Prairie in 1996, Grasshoppers in the Field in 1999, Geese in Flight in 2001, and Deer Crossing in 2002. He was working on Fisherman's Dream from 2003 to 2006, and it is now erected.
These ridiculous scrap metal sculptures make for some super weird roadside art. There's even a hotel called The Enchanted Castle, which is a themed hotel inspired by this highway attraction.
Took a detour to ride this highway and definitely worth it. The kids enjoyed stopping at each sculpture and some of them even had other games- one had a maze, one had cows grazing close by. If you have the time, drive by and check it out
