“revered work of in situ folk art”

The Hartman Rock Garden is one of the nation’s most intriguing and revered works of in situ folk art, an outsider art phenomena where self-taught artists construct fascinating worlds out of concrete, metal, stone, and whatever else they can find.

Over the past eighty-plus years, the Hartman Rock Garden has welcomed tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world. With its recent restoration and ongoing preservation, it is poised to welcome countless more over the coming decades. We hope you enjoy your visit and that you will consider making a donation to help ensure that this national treasure is preserved, maintained, and interpreted for future generations.

Today, the Hartman Rock Garden is owned, interpreted, and maintained by the Friends of the Hartman Rock Garden, a local 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.

Very cool! I spent longer there than I expected too, with so many details to see! In someone's backyard, but I didn't feel obtrusive. They have maps there detailing the history behind each individual rock sculpture. A donation box is there as well, which I was happy to give to after thoroughly enjoying this unique art instillation.

I didn't really think this was worth the stop. It was a very unique place but I was basically the size of someone's back yard. Doesn't seem pet friendly

Not dog friendly but free and very cool! We were impressed by the detail, especially given the large scale of the rock garden. The water features lacked water which made it look a little sad. Overall worth the stop 😊.
