While attending the Bead and Button Show, Wisconsin native and Lark Book author, Brenda Schweder filled me in on some local attractions. It was her description of “The Witch’s House” that really caught my attention. I knew where I headed.
The homestead of Mary Nohl is a wondrous place. She was not a witch, but did create imaginative, mythical sculptures of humans, animals, and dinosaurs out of concrete. They are scattered all over her property. Her house and garage are trimmed with handmade decorative reliefs. Wooden ornaments hang from trees. Although not open to the public, I was inspired by my trip to her home. It’s a visual feast.
