One of the most unique experiences I have ever had. HIs work in and on his house are inspirational for me, especially his creativity in wood met with strength and function of the pieces.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the family as well as the history of the building. She wove a wonderful account of his early years as a painter and used that to give us more insight throughout the tour of the surface designs on the wood as well as how Esherick viewed the world through that lens.
