The handmade community of Tiny Town displays unique scenes from important places all over the world and even some hand carved celebrities. From a flashing lighthouse to a peaceful country farm the tiny land has special meaning in every detail. Once beginning as a hobby has grown into a generational exhibit on display in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Years ago, Frank and Louise Moshinskie created this sprawling landscape called “Tiny Town”. They spent decades carving, building and modifying this city that still operates today. At only 13 years old, Frank began designing miniature scenes and carving little people for his town. He designed a carnival, mountains, a lighthouse, lakes, city streets and even replicas of places in his own life. He made a miniature of the farm he grew up on as well as the the neighborhood Frank and Louise raised their children in.
A train rail connects the different parts of the town as it weaves through the different scenes. The train goes over bridges, into tunnels and across city landscapes.
After Frank and Louise passed away, their son Charles, his wife Barbara and grandson Jim, have since taken over leadership of Tiny Town. They moved the display to Hot Springs to make it available to the public by opening a little museum to put the village on display. Over the years what started as a garage hobby has expanded to a popular Hot Springs destination.
