MUSEUM

The museums on top of Dahlia Hill contain the original artwork of Charles Breed, known nationally for his innovative work using plastic as an art medium. The museums are called Equiline, which was originally the name of  Charles' business - it refers to how two seemingly contradictory philosophies can coexist. For example, it is possible to be a romantic pragmatist or a liberal conservative. 

The majority of the art is based on botanical and floral shapes - especially the dahlia. The four cast aluminum sculptures on Dahlia Hill are abstract dahlias with human characteristics representing the four stages of life.

Free tours are available Monday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 5 p.m. If you would like a tour when you are at Dahlia Hill, please contact us to make arrangements.
