50,000 beer cans at the Beer Can House!
When you drive up Malone Street, you think you’re in just any residential neighborhood until you see a shiny silver house with beer can chimes blowing in the wind.
The Beer Can House belonged to John Milkovisch who was a retired upholsterer for the Southern Pacific Railroad. He was tired of mowing the grass, so in 1968 he started creating “art” by adding marbles and rocks to concrete and making unique lawn ornaments. When the yard was full, he started to cover the house in beer can siding. Over 18 years, John added over 50,000 cans to his house.
