“harvey fite”(24 reviews)

“sculpture park”(10 reviews)
This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork. It is possible to visit by appointment on non-open days.

This is a beautiful, breathtaking work of out. It's really quite unique as my husband and I have never seen anything quite like it. It's small enough that you can enjoy the entire site in about an hour, but the grounds are lovely enough that...More
