The front and back yard of this metal shop is filled with various works of art. 

Some of the choice pieces visitors will find are the “World’s Largest Firing Rifle,” a replica of the Eiffel Tower, flowers, insects, eagles, a functioning locomotive, Noah’s Arch (with audio recordings about the Arch), and even a massive horseshoe archway.

The works vary in size, detail, and scale. Lillo even spent the better part of a year constructing the infamous shootout involving the James-Younger gang at a Northfield bank.

Anyone can stop by to take a tour and it is free. The owner and assistant are always willing to talk about the various pieces around the property.
