Living Rock Studios

Living Rock Studios is a fascinating monument to one family's passion for their Christian faith, their pioneer roots and their rocks. For some 10 years back in the 1970s and 80s the Taylor family labored to build a broad, round, two-story stone tower, its interior walls studded with agates, crystals, scoria (pumice-like volcanic rock), obsidian and Indian and pioneer artifacts. Patriarch Howard Taylor, the driving force behind this enterprise, painstakingly created Biblical scenes from thinly sliced bits of translucent rock, which are backlighted to illuminate the radiant, natural colors.
