Field of Concrete Corn - Dublin, OH
109 ears of Corn Belt Dent Corn, standing upright in rows, are 6 feet 3 inches tall and are a salute to Sam Frantz, an inventor of hybrid corn. At the end of the rows there are two rows of Osage Orange trees planted.
Frantz farmed this site from 1935-1963. He used it as a study field for mutant strains of corn. Mr. Frantz is well known for his development of hybrid corn seeds.
Artist/Sculpture, Malcolm Cochran, was brought in to create the concrete cornfield. It was completed in 1994.
The “cornfield” is located in an industrial complex at Sam & Eulalia Frantz Park, 4995 Rings Road, Dublin, OH.
