Pasaquan is a 7-acre compound near Buena Vista in Marion County. It was created by an eccentric folk artist named Eddie Owens Martin, who called himself St. EOM. An internationally renowned art site, it consists of six major structures including a redesigned 1885 farmhouse, painted concrete sculptures, and 4 acres of painted masonry concrete walls. In September 2008, Pasaquan was accepted for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Info from Wikipedia. Picture submitted by
