There are remarkably few people who know exactly how Gnomesville appeared; however, there are several different stories. Some people believe that a random gnome appeared, and other people placed their gnomes so the original one would not be lonely.
Another story is that the local workmen created a cricket scene with gnomes in the middle of the roundabout for fun!
