If aliens ever visit our planet, they will find a quiet place to rest in Jody Pendarvis’ homemade UFO Welcome Center in Bowman, South Carolina. Jody Pendarvis is a kooky southern gentleman who has built a ramshackle UFO welcome center in his backyard in rural Bowman, South Carolina.
Built to resemble to silver UFO’s stacked behind a scrap metal fence, the welcome center was cobbled together from scrap wood, metal, and random junk. The larger of the makeshift ships is on the bottom of the stack and was built with all the amenities an interstellar traveler might need such as a toilet, shower, television, and air conditioning.
The smaller of the ramshackle saucers simply rests atop the other with no connecting bolts. According to aspiring galactic ambassador Pendarvis, this will allow for it to be moved easier by alien technology. This video is long but worth looking at it!
The ships look a little rundown these days, but Pendarvis, who stays in the ship when the temperature goes above 55 degrees because it has better AC than his trailer, still holds out hope for alien visitors.
Of course, human visitors are allowed to tour the UFO Welcome Center if they are able to reach Pendarvis and pay his ever increasing entry fee. Simply look for the words, “UFO Welcome Center” spray-painted on the fence.
This is what it looks like at night:
If aliens happen to land around Bowman, they’ll be greeted by Jody!
