The Garfields of Grant County

Over the holiday weekend, we took the RV to Hartford City, Indiana near where my mom lives. Several years ago, there was about a dozen Garfield statues placed around Grant County in Indiana. Garfield’s creator, Jim Davis, is a native of Fairmount and still have a presence near there. We decided to see if we could visit all of them over the weekend.

Unfortunately, we were not able to accomplish that goal. One of the Garfields in Marion was not available because you needed to make an appointment. The one in Van Buren was not available due to maintenance (someone told me it was vandals). Needless to say, here are the ones we did visit.
