The house was torn down in October 2023. A local arts group, Creative 360, scraped off some of the mosaics and plans to display them indoors at its headquarters in Midland.

An interesting stop. You have to walk around the entire house.

John Pratt Mosaic House

Located on M-20 a bit west of Midland. This house is extensively decorated in elaborate mosaic patterns comprised of bits of mirror, ceramic, nuts, bottle caps etc. I believe that this display is sponsored by an organization called The Creative Spirit Center.
