    Some tiny gnome homes that were evicted from a Pennsylvania park are making magic elsewhere.

    Little Buffalo State Park managers gave permission for Steve Hoke to create the mini houses in December but then decided they could affect wildlife habitat.

    Hoke had made about 40 gnome houses in tree roots, in hollow logs and on stumps around the forest near Newport. He says children loved the houses but he removed them last month.

    Millerstown and Duncannon offered to keep the gnome homes in local parks.

    Pennlive.com reported that 11 gnome homes have been moved to Millerstown Community Park and three are in Noye Park in Duncannon.

    Hoke says the reaction to the gnome homes has been positive and "people are thrilled to have them there."
