Thunder Mountain, Nevada
A complex of sculptures and hand-made structures, made from debris found in the area (car parts, bottles, wheels, railroad ties, etc.), and held together in a matrix of concrete. Built between 1967 and 1975, by a man named Rolling Mountain Thunder, who lived in the site for many years, and who called the site a monument to the plight of Native Americans. The complex consists of a two-story structure (a second large building, known as the hostel, burned down in the late 1980's), surrounded by pathways and numerous sculptures. Rolling Mountain Thunder, who was born Frank Van Zandt in 1911, committed suicide in 1989, and the monument is now abandoned and falling into disrepair.
