We loved everything about this visit: the place, the history, the scenic drive there ( gorgeous in autumn), the beauty of what we saw with the talent of Wharton Esherick. It is a hidden gem. Worth the wait getting there. The docents in upstairs room had palpable passion, and informative knowledge. I just did a shout out on Facebook. Thank you!.
