While you are in Fremont, be sure to visit the Fremont Troll under the north end of the Aurora Bridge. Since the bridge was erected in 1932, there have been reports of troll sightings underneath it. In 1989, Steve Badanes won an art competition launched by the Fremont Arts Council to design a way to rehabilitate the area under the bridge, which was becoming a dumping ground and haven for drug dealers. Inspired by the folktale of Billy Goat’s Gruff, the troll was created by a team of artists. The troll is made from rebar steel, wire and 2 tons of messy ferroconcrete. The statue is 18 ft tall with a shiny metal eye and is crushing a Volkswagen Beetle in his left hand. Image Credit: Mandy Haakenson
