For forty years, Howard Finster was a minister.  After retirement, he lived in Summerville, Georgia, and constructed a garden dedicated to his religious beliefs. Called "Paradise Gardens Park and Museum," it has become a fantastic world created from found objects-- fragments of mirrors, salvaged refrigerator doors, concrete walls, hubcaps, mosaic cement paths, and a pump house of Coca-Cola bottles---all to the glory of the Lord.

Finster appeared regularly on Sundays to great visitor (showing 500 of 3004 characters).
