The Deeble House

 

 

Mount Rushmore

 

Florence Deeble began this work in the 1950s. Her mother, afraid a
small child might drown in their fish pond, asked Florence to fill it in.
Florence filled in the pond with cement and just kept going.

This house is only a block from Samuel P. Dinsmoor's Garden
of Eden and Deeble was influenced by his work.

Florence Deeble died in 1999 at age 99.

Featured in the back yard of the Deeble home is Mount Rushmore, Lucas Lake,
Utah's Capital Reef National Park, and other mountain and desert scenes.

The Deeble home is now part of the Grassroots Arts Center. Inside the house
is an installation by Mri Pilar, featuring art from recycled materials.
