I have been going by this house since the 1970's. Roznoski's Hamburger place is nearby! It is truly an amazing house!

For $5 you can’t go wrong! This cute, quirky house has a great story and it worth a quick stop. We had a tour round which was quick and informative and is certainly a place which makes your heart smile!

Hours vary. It is worth it to drive by any time even if it is not open and get out of your car and take a look from the street. Combine this stop with a nearby stop to see Howard Hughes' grave at the Glenwood Cemetery... More
