Swing House

Camp Washington’s Swing House is open on Saturday for the curious public to poke around.

It took artist Mark de Jong around three years to complete the renovations to a 1880s three-story brick building, removing the upper floors and creating a functional work of architectural art that does in fact feature a swing suspended from rafters in the ceiling.

The house includes a kitchen, bedroom, floating cabinets, a bathroom — all the normal accessories you’d find in an average abode — and you can even rent it on Airbnb. If you can’t make it to this open house, don’t worry: The Swing House is open the second Saturday of every month.

Noon-4 p.m. Saturday. Free admission. Swing House, 1373 Avon Place, Camp Washington,
