FIELD OF CORN Dublin, Ohio

If I only had butter and a plate. There were a total of 109 six foot tall delicious looking corncobs displayed in a park. The problem was the corn was concrete and not edible.  This unique Roadside Attraction was a work of art finished in 1994 to commemorate Dublin’s and Ohio’s history of farming and corn cultivation.  Sam Frantz, whom the park is named after, was a leader in corn hybridization.  Each of the 109 corncobs weigh 1,500 pounds each and were individually created using several molds so although they look the same at a distance, they are slightly different in size, shape and kernel pattern. Osage orange trees are planted at the end of the park, these trees often used by farmers for over 100 years to create natural dividing lines between fields.
