I was just informed by the FLWBC that both Olfelts are still with us and that they have moved out of their home and put it on the market due to Mrs. Olfelt's health.

The condition of any one-owner Wright house is truly superb considering the age of the youngest Usonian is around 57 years old.

The other one-owner home in similar condition is the Laurent House. Now open to the public.

Cedar Rock was a one-owner house when the state acquired it, unfortunately the state has let it slide over the years especially after they spent the principal of the bequest that came with the house. The Friends of Cedar Rock, a private group, have had to raise around $100K to restore the boathouse that the state let deteriorate.

Just got an email from my sister, who lives in Minnetonka near Olfelt. She sent an ad about the house. I told her to get over there and at least take a look. I tried to talk her into buying Lykes or David Wright years ago when she lived in Phoenix. Then when she was planning to move to Minneapolis, I told her about Lovness, and Neils. She didn't look at any of them, so I doubt she will look at Olfelt, but maybe. Paisley Park, also nearby, may be on the market soon as well.

My eldest cousin lives in Madison. I doubt she'd either visit or comprehend what's on her doorstep . . .

Paisley Park is the home and studio of Prince. It is open it to the public, which will generate much more money over the long haul than a sale.
