Voted "Best Kept Secret" in 2017, JuRustic Park is a display of many of the extinct creations that inhabited the large McMillan Marsh near Marshfield during the Iron Age. After amateur paleontologist Clyde Wynia discovered the corroded remains of these creatures he began excavating.
As the rusted components of these critters were recovered they were matched as closely as possible with the original creatures and welded back together to their original forms.
In addition to the metal sculpture, Nancy Wynia has a studio/shop, the Hobbit House, exhibiting her hot glass (beads, flowers, sculpture) fibers (processing natural fibers-knitting, spinning), and life size soft sculpture. There are many pieces of her jewelry, necklaces, bracelets, pins and hairpieces made from handmade glass beads.
JuRustic Park is open most of the spring, summer and fall until 4:30 p.m. There is no admission charge to the public, but a fee is charged for guided group tours. Group tours are available by appointment.
JuRustic Park is located four miles north of Marshfield. Turn off Highway 97 onto Highway E on the north edge of Marshfield at the Wal-Mart stoplight. Go north past Menards 3 1/2 miles to Sugarbush Lane for 1/2 mile until sculptures appear on the right.
