Limited parking- park only on one side of the road - the east side (the side the home is located) & keep your vehicle on the road, there's no shoulder and it's a drop off.

The paper bill seen in photos, 6 inches is for size comparison, it's not the price.  The artist signature on most of the oil on canvas artwork is Bill Jonas. Artist Bill Jonas, of Hollywood, CA., Valparaiso native trained at the Art Institute of Chicago. He is a graphic designer and scenic artist for the film industry. In Chicago he painted many building murals including one 8 stories tall. Bill was editor of Airbrush Magazine winning Airbrush Excellence Competition five years in a row. Jonas has been commissioned by several notables to paint oil on canvas pieces including Jon & Dorothea Bon Jovi.  

Directions - Don't think I'd trust GPS in this area, from US 30 & Indiana 2 (also named Washington St.) in Valparaiso, go 4.3 mi. south on Ind. 2, to a yellow blinking light just south of the Aberdeen subdivision, turn left (east) onto 300 West, there's 2 road choices here at this V intersection, 300 West is the 2nd road (don't take the hard left turn), signs here point for Porter Township Government Offices & Boone Grove Elementary School, go 1/2 mile to the white estate home on the left (east).
