Lewis Smith decorated the outer walls of his house with muscular women. His barn and outbuildings were decorated with images of trains, people, and places. Some had sayings and lists of towns and stations. Bicycle parts and other found objects were hung from trees. His many collections filled every building. As he and his environment got older, he did not try to preserve things, even as roofs and outbuildings began to collapse. He believed it should go "back to the earth", that the earth would take care of it. In 2001, with plans being made to clear the site, the remaining art was removed for preservation.
