HAMBURG, Pa. — A tourist attraction is shutting down in Berks County.

In a Facebook post, "Roadside America" announced it will be closing after being in business for 85 years; it has not been open since March due to the coronavirus. 

"Roadside America" is located along Route 78, near Hamburg, and features over 6000 square feet of handcrafted miniature displays of rural America and O-Gauge trains.

The owners placed the display for sale three years ago but failed to find any buyers.

An auction will be held to sell all of the display pieces.
