Unique local trail inspires preservation efforts

by The 100 Companies

Doll’s Head Trail in Dekalb County’s Constitution Lakes Park became a popular and unique attraction over the last decade.

Open in the late 1800s until 1907, the South River Brick Company occupied the site, and in the years since had become a dumping ground. Discovering the final resting place for discarded items including appliances, bicycle parts, bottles and oddly enough doll parts, creator and carpenter Joel Slaton began building vignettes from the items. Inspired park visitors then followed his lead.

Throughout the 2.5 miles of part trail and part art exhibit, vignettes encourage leaving the area better than it’s found.
