The welded metal sculptures of Hubble's Rubble (AKA Hubble Rubble People) fill an empty lot along Kansas Highway 99 in Howard, Kansas. The sculptures were created by Jerry Hubbell, a realtor and rancher.
I flearned about Hubble Rubble on Episode 301 of Public Television's Rare Visions and Roadside Revelations.
My first visit to Hubble Rubble was in 2006. When I returned in 2009, I saw only a couple of sculptures that looked new from my first visit, but many of the folk art pieces had been freshened up.
Before you leave town, you may wish to grab a bite to eat at Toot's Drive-in, one block north of Hubble Rubble on K-99, or Poplar Pizza, a few blocks west..
