Don Brownlee (deceased} was a man with a keen architectural sense and was naturally talented. His livelihood was farming. His passion was as a wood carver, sculptor, musician, inventor, builder, and even fiber artist. Don said, "I have always had a creative urge."

After he married Mary Jo in 1957, they moved into his 1912 parents' farm house, in south central Kansas. It became his studio and gallery.

This farmer's yard became a sculpture garden. An 8' tall Greco-Roman limestone cowboy resides in the yard along with abstract sculptures.

The Brownlee home is unlike any other in the world. There is a signature Brownlee art work around every corner and even carved into the woodwork. He brightly painted and decorated over 500 organ pipes that reside vertically, and horizontally on the ceiling.
