Some Internet sleuths discovered John McLemore’s maze from S-Town. The photos are on Google Maps and the maze looks pretty intricate. You can see one photo of the maze above. (To see posts that McLemore wrote online under a pseudonym, see our story here.)
This post only has spoilers through Episode 1 of S-Town, but there is a spoiler through the end of Episode 2 in the comments. So if you haven’t finished Episode 2, don’t read the comments immediately at the end of this story.
Here’s another photo:
John told Brian Reed, host of S-Town, that he had planted the only hedge maze in the state, in the middle of a forest on his property. The maze has 64 possible solutions, but at the time it was only hip-high so you could still see over it. When the maze eventually grows taller, that will be a completely different situation and it will be very possible to get lost in it then.
Reed said when he saw the maze, he was “in awe.”
Tyler Goodson, a friend of John’s and featured in the podcast, shared a photo of the maze on Facebook:
Here’s another stunning photo that Tyler shared on Facebook, showing John’s talent and eye for design:
Here’s a closer look at the maze on Google Maps:
And as one listener shared on Twitter, there’s an alternative view of the maze that you can see on Bing Maps:
