  • This is another of the great small sites that the Missouri State Park system preserves. It provides a look not only into the artist's life, but into life over the time the Bentons lived in this...

  • Neat museum about an artist that many have seen but most don’t know. House and studio with an interesting video interview to watch.
  • With the guided tour you understand his life And his wife. If you are interested in his work then this is a must see.
