Delight in the offbeat & have an Artistic Soul? You will love one of my favorite places: Pasaquan.
It is a World of it’s own created by “eccentric” Georgia Artist Eddie Owens Martin “St. EOM”. An experience of American Visionary Art in concrete & Metal; Pasaquan was recognized as both architecturally and historically significant by National Register of Historic Places. But; believe me: “You have to see it to believe it!” Wow!
Pasaquan is ONLY open the First Saturday of the Month; April through November. OPEN 10:00 .am. to 4:00 p.m.
Admission is $5 per person with kids 6 and under free! There is usually some sort of a 4th of July celebration honoring the “Birthday of “St. OEM”. the creator of Pasaquan. A Visit here is is more than worth the Price & the drive; and your Kids will Love it too. Picnicking is Welcome.
