Thomas Moran
The Studio was designed by the Morans in the Romantic Victorian cottage style with strong Queen Anne elements. There are touches of Colonial Revival and Italianate as well. There are approximately ten (10) rooms, with the studio space taking-up the vast majority of the first floor. The exterior color-palette is influenced by the aesthetic movement.
Charles Ephraim Burchfield
Between the ages of 5 to 28 (1898-1921), Charles Burchfield lived in this house with his widowed mother and five siblings. Here he originated his distinctive watercolor style that seems to visualize the vibrations of nature.
Albin Polasek
This Mediterranean-style residence and studio of internationally known Czech-American sculptor, Albin Polasek, features classical busts, decorative works, and grand sculptures displayed in several rooms and in the sculpture gardens. The historic home, chapel, gardens, and temporary exhibition gallery are open to the public. Our story, although it is Albin Polasek’s story, resonates with every visitor on an intimate level. It is one of perseverance, determination, passion and the American Dream. Our mission is to enrich lives by sharing our story, our setting and our art.
