  • This place will bring to life the paintings by Andrew Wyeth as well as a better understanding of Christina's world. A definite place to stop if you are travelling near Rockland, Rockport or Camden. If you are fortunate enough to get Nancy as your tour guide, you will not only be entertained but the history of the house and its occupants will come to life as she tells the story of them all.
  • Breathtaking piece of history, the Olson House is a great visit. Take the tour relive the life of the Olson's and Andrew Wyeth. See the actual scenes that many of the world famous painting are based upon. The 2018 Jaguar Wild Berry Blast had this stop on the itinerary and i am glad it did.
