About
Murray Ross’ family was close to Maud and Everett. Murray met them when he was 10 years old and visited their home. Ross built a replica house about 6-8 km from the Marshalltown Memorial site. It is located beside his home in Rossway. He went through great efforts to ensure it was authentic. It took Ross about a year to research the original house before he built the replica. After it was built, visitors started to arrive, telling Ross their stories about Maud. Copies of Maud‘s paintings and framed photographs adorn the walls. The replica house even has a bed similar to Maud‘s. Ross also constructed a copy of the shop used by Everett. Ross said Everett used the shop to store firewood and to keep scallop shells and stones for Maud to paint. Ross‘ bird feeders, shaped as Maud‘s house, are featured in the shop. Open 9am - 8pm.
