South Carolina Department of Archives and History:"Broad Margin".

Here's what I could dig up on current ownership:Roderick Grant wrote:I seem to recall hearing that Broad Margin was now owned by the heir to one of the great American industrial fortunes. Is that right? Whoever owns it seems to be taking excellent care of it.
It's listed as "Broad Margin LLC" in care of Frederick W. Bristol Jr, w/ a Hilton Head, SC address. It sold to the LLC from the previous owners (the Palmers, who owned it since 1975) for $700,000.

They have owned it since at least 1998.
According to this article, it was to be auctioned in April of 1997 to settle a divorce of the Palmers.
Also, I have a copy of the August 1958 "House & Home" magazine that Broad Margin is in. There are six pages dedicated to it - with 6 b&w photos, 2 section drawings and a floor plan, each w/ accompanying text.
Is this the only Usonian in which vertical perf boards are exclusive? The only other vertical perf design I can recall is the McBroom residence which was built in Virginia a few years ago based upon the Ruth Keith/Bertha Hamilton designs.
David, thank you very much for your assistance and efforts.
