Rockabilly Road Trip: Billy Tripp’s Mindfield

An hour or so outside of Memphis, we stopped in Brownsville to see the Mindfield. Photos can’t quite capture the scope of this thing– it’s a giant, fantastic bricolage of metal. The highest points are over 100 feet tall and there are hundreds of details nestled into every possible nook. Billy Tripp started working on it in 1989 and apparently plans to continue until his death when it will become his grave. Places like this give me life!

  1. Oh, wow! I didn’t know about this place and we were in Brownsville earlier this year. But we’ll be back in Memphis for my sister-in-law’s wedding in 6 months or so, and we’re definitely stopping!
