Charles MacDonald Concrete House Museum reviews
The house itself is worth the stop. The history and the story of Charles and Mable are very interesting. The displays of Charlie's work are not up to what I expected however. more »
A very interesting place with an awesome person dedicated to the arts thru his sculptures and paintings. I am going back to see more of the houses he built in the valley. more »
What an amazing person he was. An industrialist who was concerned about the welfare of his workers, and a person with a very playful sense, as well as a talented painter. If you can, go and see his..... more »
Yes it is solid, even the lawn ornaments are solid,(concrete) take some time come over to Centreville and have a look around.
Freaky but cool
Love this museum. It is such a breath of fresh air, (literally). A walk back in the past in the most lovely location. The house itself is a marvel and the grounds are always beautiful and fun, with the concrete statues and a new art piece every summer. We always come here at least once a summer to see the new Uncommon Common Art piece that is placed here. It is a new one every year. Also, as we are geocachers, we always check out the new series of UCA geocaches and do the tour of the Valley. This is always a favourite stop, and the geocaches here are always creative and fun, as all the caches are in that series.
Cool place. Interesting
Beautiful work. Be nicer if it was wheelchair accessible. Interesting history.
