Holy Land USA, Connecticut

A miniature landscape of the Biblical Holy Land spread out over 18 acres; built by a local attorney named John Baptist Greco. Folk art enthusiasts saved it from the bulldozers after Greco's death in 1986, however, the site then lay abandoned and in disrepair for decades. In 2014, as a result of a volunteer effort to clear the site of at least some of the brush and trees which had become overgrown over the course of 30 years, both the Holy Land sign as well as the Holy Land cross became visible once again. For a brief period, the site was then opened to the public for a tour and Mass combo.
