The House on The Rock~Journal 6 The Heritage of the Sea

All pictures are from our vacation.

Tour One~Section Two
    The Heritage of the Sea

    The Heritage of the Sea section was opened in 1990 a year after Alex Jordan Jr passed away.  This was last room he had built.  The Heritage of the Sea is a nautical display.  It houses replicas and artifacts of ships that were in the ocean during World War 2, the British Naval, Titanic, and many more historical ships/boats.  His imagination is displayed in the center of this room.   The room has a spiral case that the visitors walk to view the nautical display and the massive center piece.  The massive center piece is one of Alex Jordan Jr.'s imaginative drawing that came to life.  A battle of a huge whale and an octopus.  The whale is 60 feet tall and 200 feet long.  This is longer than the Statue of Liberty.  The whale is struggling with an octopus. The musical instrumental piece in this section is an Octopus Garden, naturally when tokens have been entered, the garden begins to play the Beatles's "Octopus Garden".  I was delighted to hear this since I am such a huge Beatles fan.
