Just pulled up outside the house to have a look, didn't have time to actually visit. Maybe next time but there is a small charge.

I have been going by this house since the 1970's. Roznoski's Hamburger place is nearby! It is truly an amazing house!

For $5 you can’t go wrong! This cute, quirky house has a great story and it worth a quick stop. We had a tour round which was quick and informative and is certainly a place which makes your heart smile!
