The Orange Show Monument is a Houston postman's creation that extols the virtues of his favorite fruit. The outdoor 3,000-square-foot monument is maze-like in design and includes an oasis, a wishing well, a pond, a stage, a museum, a gift shop and several upper decks. It was built single-handedly from 1956 until its completion in 1979 by the late Jefferson Davis McKissack. It is constructed of concrete, brick, steel and found objects including gears, tiles, wagon wheels, mannequins, tractor seats and statuettes.

The monument encourages visitors of all ages to follow McKissack's theories relating health and longevity to good nutrition, hard work and eating oranges.

The Orange Show is one of the most important folk art environments in the United States.

Admission to the Orange Show is $1.
