The home and studio of renowned painter, sculptor, lecturer and writer, Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975) remains virtually untouched since his death. This late Victorian-style house was constructed of native, quarried limestone and contains simple furnishings in neutral tones that contrast with Benton's vibrant paintings, several of which are on view in the house. Benton's studio remains as he left it, with coffee cans full of paintbrushes, paints and a stretched canvas.
