Enchanted Highway

The Enchanted Highway is a collection of large scrap metal sculptures along an unnamed road in south western North Dakota. The 32 mile long stretch of road is located between the Gladstone exit on I-94 and the small town of Regent east of Dickinson. 

Local artist Gary Greff conceived the project and began building the structures in 1989.  His goal is to counter the trend toward small town extinction and he has plans to construct more sculptures in the future. Mr. Greff opened a motel in 2012 in Regent that continues the theme of the Enchanted Highway. 

Each sculpture has a parking lot area where you can stop to admire the designs. Some also have picnic areas and play structures. We were unable to visit the “Geese in Flight” (2001) sculpture as the display was temporarily closed to the public. The remaining six sculptures are pictured below along with their name and year built. 

Metal signs advertising the Enchanted Highway are located in and around Regent, North Dakota.

We enjoyed our trip on the Enchanted Highway. The roads were paved with very minimal traffic. The area is agricultural land with fields of wheat, hay and sunflowers. We feel it is a worthwhile trip when in the area and have time to spare.
