Packway Sculptures

Located less than two miles from the intersection of Highways 299 and 89, Packway Sculptures is a very unique art display visible from a public road in the intermountain region near Hat Creek in Shasta County.  Two brothers who run a local construction company build the sculptures at Packway which are made of various construction supplies and other unusual materials.

Some of the more interesting sculptures you'll find at this roadside exhibit are a dinosaur that measures nearly 40 feet tall, a giant ant, and a man made from the local lava rocks.  The medium and the setting of this art display is unlike any other you'll find in California and has attracted lots of roadside admirers.

The sculptures were made by Richard and Will Hathaway over a period of many years.  The  composition of the sculptures is varied, reflecting the construction background of the owners.   To find this roadside attraction, take Cassel Road south from Highway 299 for about a mile.  Packway Sculptures will be on the right. You can't miss it!

I stumbled upon this wonderful collection of artwork near sunset. Best seen at sunrise because they are on the West side of the street. These deserve to be seen by more. They go beyond whimsey. Truly great.

I ran across this place a few years back. Such a delight discovering things like this. I posted a little video I took of it at the time:
