Giant Garden Gnome, Gnome Chomsky
5755 Route 209, Kerhonkson, NY 12446
What's better than a giant gnome? This one can be found at a home in Kerhonkson at Kelder's Farm. If you have ever been to this farm then you may know what I'm talking about. This gnome is 13'6" feet tall and goes by the name of Gnome Chomsky. Be sure to capture his pointy shoes.
You can visit this site at Gnome Chomsky, Route 209, Kerhonkson, New York.
Uncle Sam's House
Catskill, NY 12414
My sister surprised me on one of our road trips and brought me to Uncle Sam's House. I was excited to learn how the actual Uncle Sam, once lived in the house and property I was standing on. On site, there is a historical marker with his statue. If you're in the mood for drinks, there is now a tiki bar below the house with a neat interior.

The Mushroom House
142 Park Road, Pittsford NY14534
If you have ever been to Powder Mills Park, you may already know about the Mushroom House. If you haven't already, this may be something that you want to see in person. This is a town landmark that was declared in the 1970's. This residence was once occupied and has changed ownerships a few times. From my knowledge, it is now available for rent.

The Fork in the Road
Intersection of Route 308 and 199 in Red Hook, NY
For the most part, we have all dealt with a fork in road situations but not actually witnessing one. You can see this for yourself in Dutchess County. It's neat because this fork in the road takes you to different places. A man named, Steve Schreiber is one responsible for putting this fork in the road, I'm sure glad that he did for all of us to see.
Be sure to see this for yourself at the intersection of Route 398 and 199, located in Milan.
