There was a lot of road construction on 9/29/2019. We drove slowly past his driveway. The gate is chained shut and the driveway is overgrown. We waited too long.

Better visit now, while you still can. Dr. Evermor has been in a rest home for a few years after suffering strokes. Lady Eleanor runs the place now, but she's looking for a buyer. She says they have to vacate their current space behind the salvage yard, so she's looking for someone to buy all the sculptures and move them to a new location.
