‪Please make this priority when visiting Mid Coast , Maine. A time capsule of beauty, nature and art.
A step back in time. ‬

‪If you're a fan of Andrew Wyeth, especially of his painting Christina's World or his lesser-known painting Woodstove, you have to see this historic home. When we went, the musem itself was closed for renovations, but it's an experience to just view it from the road.‬

‪Following our visit to the Farnsworth in Rockland we made a reservation and drove out to the Olson House. My wife wanted to go and I was a good sport, but wound up enjoying the visit. You must be part of a guided tour and since they fill up you should buy your ticket at the Farnsworth and make a reservation. We had a local volunteer as our guide and she was delightful and full of interesting information. The Olson House was built in the 1700's and eventually was owned by a brother and sister who lived their lives their. The sister was suffering from a disease and could not walk but she ran the house and her brother ran the farm. They essentially adopted Andrew Wyeth, who spent his summers nearby, and gave him free rein to walk through the house to paint them as subjects and to paint the interesting aspects of the house and location. We walked through the three story house and heard lots of stories about the three of them. There are some prints on display that heighten the experience and you can see the rooms and views that inspired Wyeth. Its a really pretty drive to get out there through the Maine countryside.‬

‪I have loved the paintings of Andrew Wyeth for most of my life. I have always wondered about the young woman crouching in the grass below the weathered farmhouse; there must be a story in this one. But my favorites have been the details inside the old house - the curtains blowing in the open window, the worn wood and hardware, that skiff hoisted up i the shed...

And then I read Christina Baker Klein's book, A Piece of the World, a novel about Christina Olson and Andrew Wyeth and I knew I had to go and visit the Olson house for myself. I have never taken so many photos on a single site - ever! But know I know why Wyeth needed to paint there, and how he never seemed to run out of subject matter. I am not by an means a photographer - but ever one I took came looks almost professional. I believe this house WANTS to be photographed and/or painted.

I had the rare privilege of being the only one on my tour, and had a most knowledgeable guide - it was like visiting a friend. And then I had plenty of time to wander about on my own, taking more and more pictures. In the kitchen I could picture Christina and Alvaro sitting in their rocking chairs near the Glenwood - and I sensed the ghosts lurking in the shadows, remembering earlier times...‬

‪This place takes you back in time - and in art - to when Andrew Wyeth lived and worked near Cushing ME. He was friendly with the Olson siblings who lived in this house and did many paintings in and around their buildings. On summer Thursdays, David Rockwell, a nephew of this Wyeth, gives informal talks with emphasis on family anecdotes and pictures. Brings a lot of life to the building. Tours need to be scheduled in advance. Recommend going here before the Farnsworth in Rockland because it provides tremendous backstory for all the Wyeth's.‬

‪I have been an art teacher for 40 years and this was the best history lesson I have ever had on a artist. Andrew Wyeth has always been a great inspiration to me and being here where he painted was so exciting. The tour guide was beyond knowledgable. I could not imagine the tour taking an hour (and she went over an hour) she had so much information. Will not disappoint.‬

‪Beautiful location. You can’t walk through the house on your own, you must go on the 40 minute tour. We were traveling with young children and weren’t warmly received. This would be a great stop for an adults only trip, definitely skip this one if you are traveling with kids under 12! ‬

‪If you are a fan of Andrew Wyeth and his relationships withe the Olson family, then you will have to visit this site. Not only is this site the home of Christina Olson, but it was the site of about 1,000 sketches and paintings that he completed.
Well we heard David Rockwell, Andrew Wyeth's nephew, share his family experiences with us about Andrew Wyeth and the Olson family. He shared is personal experience of spending time with Christina Olson as he visited her home. Then also his time with the Wyeth family. His mother was Betsy Wyeth's sister. He shared some funny stories and we learned some insight into Andy's life and his family. Well worth the chance to hear more about this part of their life.‬
