As Barbara Campagna – the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Graham Gund Architect – reports on the PreservationNation blog, the flood waters have receded at the Farnsworth House. Flood waters from the remnants of Hurricane Ike rose to about 18″ in the house before cresting. Check out Barbara’s post to read about the way the staff protected the priceless furniture and panels in this modernist masterpiece.
Tomorrow I’ll be at Montpelier in Orange, Virginia, to help celebrate the restoration of James Madison’s home by the Montpelier Foundation and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Check out the blog tomorrow evening for pictures and an update.
More to come…
