"Pyramid Hill is pleased to offer free admission to the park and the museum on March 11, the birthday of founder Harry T. Wilks. Even though Mr. Wilks is no longer with us, he lives on through his creative vision of a natural setting in which to enjoy monumental sculptures. His interests ranged from the ancient, as seen in the museum, to the modern, and we are grateful for his dream and his implementation of it—a park where the art and the outdoors can both be enjoyed year-round. We hope people will take advantage of the day to remember a great philanthropist and to explore this very special place." - Lee Sanders, Interim Director
Harry Thomas Wilks was a prominent lawyer in Hamilton County who actively served the community through various philanthropic committees. In 1986 Harry purchased the initial 40 acre property to build his home, now the Pyramid House. Eventually he envisioned something more, manifesting a space to preserve nature and exhibit world class sculptures that through his dedication grew into the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park guests can enjoy today. Sharing his love for both art and nature with visitors brought many years of joy and satisfaction before passing on his 89th birthday in 2014.
