They interviewed my father, who is 91 years old to preserve his memories as a WW2 veteran. He was treated wonderfully with honor and respect for his service. The Norton is more than just Art,...... It is preserving history.

We took a granddaughter there for the purpose of taking pictures of a granddaughter suitable for framing. Success was ours! The surroundings were beautiful, with an abundance of flowering plants,benches, and lush grass. We were thrilled with the results. Scored at the top!
