OSSIAN, Indiana – An Indiana family has turned a home improvement project into an amusement attraction.

Now people are traveling from across the state and across the country to check out the Stark family’s grain silo.

You can’t miss the 25-foot minion in Kathy Stark’s yard.

“The farmers have all told me I’m the talk of the county,” Stark said.

She and her family painted the grain holder and welded together six-foot eyes for the character.

“We’ve had everything from low flying helicopters, to a guy on his lawn mower that lived in Decatur several miles away that was pulling his wife and his kid in a cart,” she said about the visitors.

Kathy said she is thrilled neighbors near and far like the new artwork.

“Oh it just tickles me pink,” she said. “I just can’t believe the response. I knew people would love it but I had no idea that it was going to turn out as good as it did.”
