Creativity Corner

Dickeyville has a long history of resident creative artists.  Its only a guess,  but they are possibly drawn to the village by its unique, sometimes quirky, character homes along with its tranquil atmosphere and proximity to nature.

Previous creative residents include; Maryland poet laureate Lucille Clifton; author Laura Lippman; artist Robert McGill Makall (1889-1982) and painter Sheryl Schmidt (who contributed artwork used within the village website logo).
