Hartman Rock Garden

<p>Art lovers will be pleased to learn that Springfield is home to an art piece like no other. The Hartman Rock Garden, which is a prime example of "in situ" folk art, was created by Ben Hartman when he lost his job during the Great Depression. Though he was never trained as an artist, over the years he constructed a masterpiece of concrete, rock, and live flowers in his yard. Today, there are 50 structures and numerous handmade figurines in this "garden of love." Though it was almost lost to time and disrepair in the mid-90s, the rock garden has been restored to its former glory, and is free to visit 365 days a year.</p>
