House on the Rock

On our drive over to the Mississippi River, we spent a good part of the day at the House on the Rock in Spring Green. Oh, my. What an adventure.
Alex Jordan built a 14 room Japanese home on a 60 foot chimney of rock in the 1940's. Jordan had a wild and fantastic imagination, a grand vision, and a miriad of unique and eclectic collections. It was absolutely fascinating and surprising ~ every single room! I cannot even begin to describe or list the variety of things you will find as you spend hours just walking through the rambling rooms and buildings. It's amazing.
You will really need to experience it yourself to fully appreciate and understand my amazement!
