Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

Maryhill Museum and Columbia River, Washington



I can extract some memories of things past concerning trips to Maryhill Museum, Sam Hill's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Hill) bleakly Quixotic manse:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryhill_Museum_of_Art.   I have memory traces of Rodin sculptures, Russian icons, First Nations basketry, and other works. 


  1. It looks like a nice interesting small museum, located in the middle of nowhere.

    You don't remember a full-size astronomically-aligned reproduction of Stonehenge?

  2. Yes, the Stonehenge replica is pretty cool as well. The monument is reproduced in a way that shows all the lintels still in place, as one can see in photos.
