Missed the azalea blooms but thoroughly enjoyed walking through the gardens. Didn't go inside but will on next visit. Beautiful landscaping. Hills and small creeks and ponds. Very relaxing. Lovely Sunday afternoon stroll.

I walk here in the mornings. It's like you are walking through an enchanted forest. So lovely to see the flowers blooming, ducks, chickens, different gardens. What a gem.

Terrific free art museum and beautiful gardens. I wish I had allocated more time to view the wonderful paintings. North Carolina artist Bob Timberlake (living near my hometown) had two works on display! Well worth a visit!

Except for one VERY LOUD younger woman who works there...More

This was an unexpected surprise! Kudos to the Norton family for making their extensive art collection available to the public at no cost. Great variety with many oil paintings and bronzes by a variety of artists including Remington and Russell. Absolutely worth a stop.

You may want to check out their Facebook site for current displays. Also, the neighborhood has been commenting on the chickens seen over there lately. RW Norton Gallery on Facebook
