Laurence Gieringer founded Roadside America and was one of the world's most respected builders of miniature models. His love for miniatures has said to begun when he was a small child, around the age of 5 years. Over the years that love grew and he built himself a large collection which is on display today for the world to enjoy.

These are interactive miniature displays with animated working saw mills, construction sites, cable cars, circus animal parade, boats in simulated rivers & streams and so much more! In addition, these animations can be activated by visitors!
From every angle...every scene has been meticulously recreated to look exactly like it may have looked back in those times. If you have ever sat down and look through old community books and newspapers...these scenes look exactly like those! It's amazing the attention that they paid to every little detail...from the cars, the landscaping, the clothing worn on the miniature people and so forth. I can't even imagine the hours and years it took to create something like this! Amazing!
