The Wharton Escherick house is the museum and is a must see. His wood sculptures are interesting and creative. But even more interesting and creative is the way he built the house, blending his artistic styling with utility and simplicity. To top it all off, our docent was knowledgeable and personable making the whole experience terrific and highly recommended.
