Bottle Village has been called many things in its quirky 30-year history in Simi Valley. An eyesore. Folk art. A historic landmark.

Grandma Prisbrey's Bottle Village in Simi Valley--that wacky collection of 22 buildings and sculptures built by hand from bottles, tiles, headlights and other discarded items from the city dump--is in trouble again. No stranger to adversity, the village was nearly demolished in 1982 to make way for condominiums.
