To the casual observer, Peter Wolf Toth’s property on U.S. 1 in Edgewater, Florida might be mistaken for a shop featuring chainsaw art. Intricately-carved wooden heads of Native Americans soar into the blue skies above. Faces carved into pieces of driftwood and colorful paintings of historic figures are scattered around the perimeter.
A hand-painted wooden sign reads, “Welcome to My ‘Free’ Museum. A Living Working Studio.” But other signs warn trespassers to keep out.
A piece of rebar blocks what seems to be the entrance to the studio.
On the ground is a blue hand-painted sign that asks the question, “Want to Come In My Studio & Museum?”
A phone number is listed below.
Call the number, wait a few rings and a man with a gravelly voice answers. “You’re more than welcome to come in and look around my museum.”
