About
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 place was disappointing. It was a marvel to see the work one man accomplished and his dedication but it was just an old building and a giant layered stone patio.

Scenery is great, Sculptures are very interesting. Signage is terrible. We did not pay $10 admission but don't know their policies. Very talented artists. Other areas of the village about 8 miles away have many antiques and restaurants. Worth a stop by..
