Statues in Hampton, MN

*Note to all fans of the Muffler Man statues, these are not a part of that iconic club.

Dear Diary,
Hampton, MN is a small, rural community with a population of less than 700 people.

It's ideal location 40 miles south of the Twin Cities, close to major thoroughfares and the county seat of Hastings make it appealing to commercial businesses, who have been petitioning the township to rezone beyond just agricultural.

But until that happens, proud farm after family farm dot the landscape. It makes for a very scenic drive en route to Rochester and beyond.

It was during one such trek that we passed a trucking/landscaping/racing business (I know, quite the combination), Eilen & Sons Trucking. It's well-maintained aesthetic was eye-catching, but what really grabbed our attention was the collection of unique, roadside statues.

 (As evident by The Beach Man's shorts, can you sense the common theme here? #skol)

How could you NOT pull in? That was the statues' intent, after all.

  1. I love these! I've seen another similar "Beach Dude" so there must be more!

  2. Interesting! There's also a gorilla somewhere on property, but we were unable to find him without trespassing ...
