Stopped by to visit but they were closed on the day we visited. A neighbor was walking by and offered to take a photo of the two of us in front of it. That was a really friendly gesture.

No idea why this household thought this was a good idea. If you're in the are, stop by. Not really worth going out of your way to see.

This is a cool thing to see. No one ever believes us when we say lets cruise by the Been Can House on our way into town. Got to see it!

Certainly a sight to behold, if in the area. An example of one families creative expression. Think of all the energy put forth to collect and repurpose so many beer cans! Good dining establishments in area- another reason to visit locality.

Hours vary. It is worth it to drive by any time even if it is not open and get out of your car and take a look from the street. Combine this stop with a nearby stop to see Howard Hughes' grave at the Glenwood Cemetery... More
