In his ninety-three years, Charles MacDonald was a sailor, a sculptor, a builder, a manufacturer, and a socialist.

His house is now used to display his beautiful works of art that range from landscape artwork, to his wondrous sculptures that fill the property, his concrete house decor and details surrounding the house.
