|Facility:||Farnsworth Art Museum|
|Description:||Museum admission includes the Farnsworth Homestead which is next door and is an example of Greek Revival architecture. Built in 1850, it contains many of the original family furnishings. The museum also owns the Olson House. Painter Andrew Wyeth created many of his best-loved works at the Olson House, the home of Christina Olson and her brother Alvaro. Christina's World, painted at the house in 1948 and now owned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, is perhaps his best-know work painted there. The Olson House is located 14.5 miles from the museum in Cushing, ME.|
