Thankful for Mr. Butcher sharing his God given talent. This place is beautiful, peaceful, and I loved hearing about the meanings behind each painting and the figures in them. This is a must see.

If you can't find peace, Beauty, or Joy here, you likely will not find it any where else. Immaculately, beautifully kept grounds hidden off the beaten path. In the past, I have not been a huge precious moments fan; however, my opinion has forever changed....More
