A few treasures to seek out during your visit.
Gillis Art Gallery at the Ice House
It's open by appointment only, but totally worth the call. Gil Gillis' photography, mixed media, and encaustic pieces fill an old cold storage warehouse that belonged to his family generations ago. The Ice House is a special event venue, as well. Reach out to Sue or Gil for a tour or rental information. 478.278.7224
