Long Description:
The site of greatest interest in the near vicinity is the Ohrmann Museum & Gallery, four miles up Highway 1 from the little village of Hall. The Ohrmann Museum is a fascinating place to visit. The yard is filled with Bill Ohrmann's creations, animals and insects, both contemporary and prehistoric, all expertly crafted of metal. Here one will find Mayflies, Herons, Kodiaks, Elk, Antelope, Mules, Polar Bears, Turtles, Eagles, Owls, even Dinosaurs and Wolly Mammoths. They were all finely sculpted with welder and cutting torch.

Just inside the gallery, on a small oak lecturn, is the Museum's guest book, begun on October, 19, 2002. Be sure to sign it when you visit.

This is a free museum and you are welcome to view, photograph and even sit on the Turtle. According to Mrs. Ohrmann, Bill was a rancher and artist all of his life. Though he has produced some amazing sculptures, he now limits his creativity to paintings that he sells in the gallery. Note: all of the sculptures that are on display are "Not for Sale" and placed there purely for the enjoyment and appreciation of Mr. Ohrmann's talents. Sadly, Bill Ohrmann passed away on November 19, 2014, just five months before the accompanying photos were taken.

At the Ohrmann Museum and Gallery you will be introduced to the unique paintings of Bill Ohrmann, retired rancher, life-long artist, and in these paintings, spokesman for the earth. With his brush, he has expressed his no holds barred view of man's inhumanity to nature, to each other, and to the creatures with which we share this planet. Alternating with the scenes of mayhem and dire predictions are hopeful, inspiring scenes of how it was or how it should be.

Also at the gallery are life-sized welded steel sculptures of elk, buffalo, bear, and a woolly mammoth. These pieces are done in a realism style and must be seen to be appreciated.

Bronzes, woodcarvings and clay sculptures are also on display.
