While driving northwards on Redmond's Southwest 77th Street, look to your right and you will spot a mini settlement made entirely of stones. This attraction known as Petersen Rock Garden, spread across four acres (1.6 hectares) of land, is the brainchild of Rasmus Petersen (1883-1952), a Danish immigrant. Petersen, an avid collector of rocks, used the rocks in the vicinity to replicate churches, monuments, castles, buildings, and bridges. This garden is located on his property, and since his demise has been managed by his family.
