Description

Photographer Mike Barton has colorfully captured the Mushroom Houses of Charlevoix designed by Earl Young in more than 130 full-color photographs. Earl Young never met a stone he didn't like. Young designed and built twenty-one unique stone houses that look like they came from fairy tales. Ranging in size from large sprawling homes to tiny one-bedroom cottages, they are constructed of ice age boulders, fieldstone, and area limestone. The distinctive charm of these "fairy-tale houses" left a visible and lasting legacy that continues to fascinate people today. The first time you drive down Park Avenue and see them, you can't help but think that you are in Smurf Village somewhere in the middle of a deep forest. Young's creations are referred to by many people as the Mushroom
