A question I am
frequently asked by people visiting our museum and 'Gibtown' is:
"Where are all the freaks"?
I suppose uninformed, out of town people expect to
see giants, midgets and two headed people walking down the
boulevard together with juggling circus clowns. I just smile and
tell them "We refer to them as human oddities and at one time
there were 138 known human oddities in our little town of
Gibsonton when the big sideshows wintered here in the 1940's and
50's. Where are they now?...Well, I'm afraid they're buried in
the Hackney Cemetery. I don't know of a single human oddity in
this town anymore. Little Pete Terhune was the last".
