This delightful handmade wood carving found its home at Baldpate’s Key Room in 1992. Baldpate guests, Thurston & Shirley Bridges, who had stayed with us for many years, always enjoy spending time sitting on the front porch visiting with other guests and carving their unique gnomes. We approached them about doing a special carving for our 75th birthday and our beloved gnome was born!
|Thurston begins with a log|
He will mischievously guide you around our Key Collection to discover special keys that are designated as part of the Baldpate’s "Roam with the Gnome Collection." And if, and only if you can find them all, you will earn the coveted Junior Key Keeper Award and Ribbon.
Be careful, he will be watching you closely the entire time to be sure you are learning as you go!
|Our Gnome begins to emerge|
|Shirley begins her transformation|
Come see if you can find him in our key collection!
