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.

This is a fascinating place to visit, especially if you get a tour from a knowledgable guide. Raymer was a local artist. His art and life are displayed here.

If you are in Lindsborg or the area, this is a must see. Well worth the jaunt to south Main st. It won't eat up your day so there is no excuse to see this wonderful artists' workshop and home.

This is Lester Raymer's studio, pretty much as he left it when he died in 1991. Raymer was the Picasso of the Plains and could turn anything to art, examples of which are all over the studio. Each time I visit, I find something new....More
