Things To Do Overview

Beginning construction in 1956 at age 60, and working until 1981, Tressa “Grandma” Prisbrey transformed her one-third acre rural lot into Bottle Village, a fantasyland of shrines, wishing wells, walkways, fountains, follies, plus 15 structures to house her collections – all made from found objects. The name “Bottle Village” comes from the structures themselves – made of tens of thousands of discarded bottles. Bottle Village was a hobby Grandma enjoyed, and enjoyed sharing with anyone who would pay a quarter for a walking tour. Now this art piece is registered as a state treasure, as California Historical Landmark # 939.
