There's One Roadside Attraction in Massachusetts That Has Been Dubbed the "Weirdest"

If you are in a weird mood one attraction that you may want to explore is the Paper House in Rockport. According to a recent article published by Trips to Discover, the Paper House is considered the weirdest roadside attraction. As the video below is titled, the Paper House is a house built and furnished out of newspaper. Here  is an excerpt from the Trips to Discover article regarding this unusual Massachusetts roadside attraction (photos and video tour below) 

Set along the rocky coast of Cape Ann, one of Massachusetts’ most charming small towns, the Paper House was a summer cottage built using newspapers. He had quite a few of them himself, but when he told friends and neighbors about his plans, they donated theirs to his supply. After its completion in 1922, some 100,000 sheets of newsprints had been used.
