From June to October, sculptor Peter Beerits offers an informal tour of Nellieville, his quirky, found object installation of a Western town, juke joint, general store, Arthurian Grail castle, wizard’s tower and a church-in-the-woods. Beerits has been making sculpture for more than 40 years using the bygone material and equipment of local livelihoods, like fishing, farming and forestry. Nervous Nellie’s 4-acre campus in an orchard at the edge of the woods, also includes a jam factory producing 40,000 jars/annually, a gift shop and small tea room serving homemade goodies.
