The Mary Nohl House

The “witch’s house” that’s fascinated Milwaukee residents for years may be getting a new home. Artist Mary Nohl lived and worked on the property until her death in 2001 at age 87. The interior and exterior of the home became her canvas over the years—the yard is filled with figurines of all kinds, and the interior showcases colorful sculptures and ceramics. The John Michael Kohler Arts Center would like to open it as a museum, but flooding in the area and discontent from the neighbors has slowed the process. The Center has now announced they may pick up and move the house to Sheboygan County. Wherever it lands, we’d love to get inside!
