Va. Park Featuring Busts of 43 Presidents to Close

September 15, 2010

A Virginia attraction that features giant busts of 43 U.S. presidents is closing by month's end.

Presidents Park in Yorktown has announced its closing September 30, according to its Website and the "Daily Press" of Newport News, which first reported the closing Monday.

Founder Everette H. Newman III said in a statement that the attraction will liquidate the property and its assets. He said 350,000 visitors have toured the park since its opening in 2004.

The park will close without the likeness of President Barack Obama. It was attempting to raise $60,000 to build and install the 16- to 18-foot tall steel-and-concrete bust.
