A must see for everyone! The history and work of Lester Raymer is fascinating! Lester repurposed almost everything included furniture. Great collection vintage tos that he handmade for his wife. Also great to visit when there is an "artist in residence"!

Lester Raymer was a painter, sculpturor, wood worker, carver, weaver etc. His studio is simple and yet elegant. The art on display is rotated with the seasons. His wife was his pride and love.
