A certain eye-catching roadside attraction in Virginia is the "Indian on Horse" just off the road. Located on Route 340, south of Winchester, Virginia, the Indian appears to be slumped over, perhaps sleepy from all the carbon monoxide fumes from the passing automobiles. According to the photographer, recent work on this roadside treasure dated 1988 on the base.

UPDATED 10/02 : The Trumpet Man looks like the Pied Piper from Dutch Wonderland,which still exists,on Route 30, outside Lancaster.

UPDATED 07/07 : He appears to be the Pied Piper from a defunct children's park called Storyland . There are other structures including an old shoe, 3 bears house, etc. His instrument is now broken, and he really is looking a bit forlorn. He has to be taller than 15 feet! Many thanks to Ray Kennelly for update. 07-07
