Grandma Prisbrey's Bottle Village

Tressa Luella Schaefer was born in Minnesota in 1896. She eventually ended up in Southern California, where she created a whimsical assemblage of structures and sculptures built out of recycled glass. Tressa died in 1988 and soon afterwards, her folk art "village" was badly damaged in the Northridge quake. Listed on the National Register, Grandma Prisbrey's Bottle Village is under active management and protection by a nonprofit organization.
