Event description

Description

Meet up with tour guide Erika Nelson at Sauk County’s very own Doctor Evermor’s sculpture park just south of Baraboo where you will see the Forevertron, the world’s largest sculpture made of scrap iron and hear the fascinating story of Tom Every, former industrial salvager and his transformation to Doctor Evermor, visionary, sculptor. Lady Elanor Every, wife of Forevertron creator Tom Every, and caretaker of the site will be on hand to answer your questions.

Tickets will also be available onsite the day of the event. Cash, check and cards accepted.
