I can remember as a kid driving by this odd sculptor in the middle of the field outside of Watkinsville. I think that it has moved but it is still interesting.

A large statue of an iron horse; not a destination, but if you happen to drive by it makes for a brief "wow, look an iron horse!" from your 4 year old.

The Iron Horse is a striking sculpture with a fascinating history. It's located on private property, so you'll need permission tp get a close look. A little Athens historical homework is required to really appreciate this.
