  • 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 »

  • 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.
