|House on Deer Shelter Rock (TheHouseOnTheRock.com)|
Long a regional tourist attraction in southwest Wisconsin, this "eccentric architectural and entertainment attraction" is a sprawling complex of unique structures, rooms, streets, and gardens designed by Alex Jordan, Jr. (1914-1989).
|Alex Jordan, Jr.|
Jordan, an imaginative architect, said about his complex: "One thing just sort of led to another." And staying true to his feeling that "more is not enough," he continued adding "room after room filled with some of the world's more unique, eclectic and whimsical collections," according the brochure.
