Field of Corn: An Amazing and Quirky Roadside Attraction

On the return trip to Alabama I decided to stop by the Field of Corn in Dublin, Ohio. The kids and I had discovered this unique roadside attraction many years ago when my husband was working on a huge project right down the road. Initially, I'd read about it in a FamilyFun Vacation Guide and knew it would be something my family would enjoy seeing. I was right. The kids thought it was hilarious!

Right in the midst of corporate America stands a field full of 6 foot tall ears of corn. 109 to be exact. You may be tempted to think that this field is simply art, but it's not. There is an underlying political message. Can you guess what it is?

I thought I'd share this video- it's not very long, won't offer any additional information on the structures, but does give you a fun up close and personal view of this amazing but quirky corn field.

Want to plan a visit of your own? You'll find this unique park at 4995 Rings Rd, Dublin, OH, minutes from 270 and the Tuttle Crossing Mall.


  1. That is too funny! My kids would get a kick out of that too. I have one more field trip planned for your travelers and then I will get them heading home to you. Thanks for the exchange!

  2. Wonder what archeologists will say when they unearth this centuries from now...I know a place for cermonial worship to the corn god. hee-hee

  3. DS says it looks like the corn is made out of golf balls!

  4. Wow!When I read that title I thought you were talking about the corn mazes that are so popular in the fall. How surprised I was to see the field of corn instead. LOL!
    That is too funny!

    Have you ever been to the giant Shoe in PA? Not quite as funny as the corn but definitely odd. :)

  5. We love corn mazes too and I'll have to be sure to check some out this fall!

    We've not been to the shoe house in PA, but it's on our list of places to visit. We watched a documentary of roadside attractions and the kids made a list of all the ones they want to see.

    Phyllis, that is so funny! I think the archeaologists will be stumped for sure!:)

  6. Amazingly enough, I'm going to be in Dublin for a family reunion at the end of July! Very interesting looking place.

  7. Kristen, if you get a chance to check this out there are benches under a row of Osage orange trees that line the Field of Corn. In front of each bench is a marker that tells about the sculptures. Can't wait to see what you think!:)


I love hearing what you think! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Blessings!:)
