Homeless gnomes: Pennsylvania state park evicts tiny houses

Posted: Updated:

NEWPORT, Pa. (AP) - Nearly 40 gnome homes have been evicted from a Pennsylvania state park after a decision change sent them packing.
    
Pennlive.com reports (http://bit.ly/1Qyu9NG ) that management at Little Buffalo State Park gave permission for Steve Hoke to create the small, magical houses in December. Since then, he has made 38 tiny houses in tree roots, hollow logs and on stumps around the forest near Newport, about 25 miles northwest of Harrisburg.
    
He says the houses were a major attraction for children.
    
Park Manager Jason Baker tells the news site he gave the OK originally, but it was later decided the homes could affect wildlife habitat.
    
Hoke removed the little abodes Monday after being told he had until Feb. 29.
    
Duncannon and Millerstown have both offered to house them in local parks.
