From his bedroom window in 1899,  five year old Laurence Gieringer could see the lights of the Highland Hotel at the crest of nearby Neversink Mountain. From his distant vantage point the building looked like a toy he could snatch from the mountain and add to his toy collection. In his adult life when Mr. Gieringer became a carpenter and painter, he amassed quite a collection of tiny, detailed buildings and accessories over his 60 year career, that became one of the worlds most famous and amazing miniature villages. His work today is one of the world’s most respected collections of miniature models. You can admire his work at Roadside America, located in Berks County, run by his family.
