Man proposes Great Wall replica near Spring ValleyA long-time collector of Chinese art says he wants to build a mile-long replica of the Great Wall of China in near Spring Valley.
A long-time collector of Chinese art says he wants to build a mile-long replica of the Great Wall of China in near Spring Valley.
Don Trent says he pictures a museum, a hotel, and a 10,000 outdoor theater with the Wall replica.
The 70-year-old Trent has worked in the live-bait business for about two decades and he says he has collected Chinese art for about 25 years.
Trent has established a foundation to try and raise funds for the effort. He said he could build a nice facility with $300 million in donations and funding from the Chinese government.
However, many in the area say they don't know what to make of Trent's idea. One acquaintance, Penny Morris, says the whole thing appears very unlikely.
