'Gnome homes' mysteriously pop up all over Kansas park

OVERLAND PARK, kAN. - Some tiny little people moved into Overland Park, Kan., or at least that's what city workers think.

Gnome homes are popping up all over the city.

The city doesn't know who is building them, but they are intricate: miniature little doors, tables and place settings.

"You know, I think it's bringing smile and laughter to those who are finding out about it," said Sean Reilly, spokesperson for Overland Park. "That's exactly what we need sometimes in our lives is a little bit of happiness, joy and truly just laughter."

The city doesn't know how many there are, but so far, they've found two along Tomahawk Creek Trail, one between Deanna Rose and St. Andrew's Golf course, and one more across Switzer behind the ball fields.
