Olson House Tours

Located at 384 Hawthorne Point Road in Cushing, Maine the Olson House is the subject of numerous works of art by Andrew Wyeth, including the iconic Christina’s World, and was the home of sister and brother Christina and Alvaro Olson. Learn about the Olsons and life on a Maine saltwater farm during the first half of the twentieth century.

Please note: The Olson House is closed to public tours due to ongoing restoration work inside the house. These projects are supported in part by the generosity of private donors and a Save America’s Treasures grant from the Historic Preservation Fund administered by the National Park Service, Department of Interior.

The house and grounds are closed to visitors and there is no parking available at the site.
