SNYDER, TX (KCBD) - In the early 1980s, local businessman Houston Ballard started making art to decorate his yard.

Now, his grandson's wife says they're working to make sure these yard decorations stay intact so future generations can enjoy them.

"So my mission here is to rehabilitate it all," said Xandy Ballard. "Refurbish it. We have the Snyder kids... church groups, school groups, do scavenger hunts and our yard is part of that. We love for people to stop and inquire 'what is this about?"

Ballard says that Houston built things he was passionate about like the spur for his love of the old west and the Peanut Man because Xandy says he loved to eat peanuts.
