Albert Christensen started blasting and drilling his dream house out of a rock cliff face near Moab, UT, in the early 1940's. By the time he and his wife moved in 1952 they had a 5000 sq. ft. 14 room mansion carved out of the rock. The couple operated a diner in the first room until 1955. Albert died in 1957 but Gladys ran the cafe and gift shop for another 17 years. They are both buried in an alcove near the entrance to the home. Today, HOLE N" THE ROCK is a thriving tourist destination with all kinds of signs, sculptures, funky curios, a petting zoo, several gift shops, and much more.
There's a lot of funky sculpture around, most of it metal.
Vintage signs. A LOT of vintage signs.
This is the end of our little tour. If you're every traveling down U.S. Highway 191
to or from Moab, I highly recommend you make a stop at HOLE N" THE ROCK.
