The Airlie Gardens Bottle House was created by a local artist, Virginia Wright-Frierson in 2004. It is officially named the “Minnie Evans Sculpture Garden Bottle House” after an artist/gatekeeper that worked at Airlie for many years. This bottle house is also referred to as the “chapel”. Frierson used bottles of all shapes and sizes as well as cement and chicken wire in its creation. There are references to Minnie Evans work in the designs of faces, butterflies and Buddhas. At the center of the house is a tree sculpture complete with birds and nests. For more, see these websites
