Rosenbaum NOT for sale

Post by FTA »

I have been in communication with Barbara Broach, who was instrumental in the restoration of Rosenbaum and co-authored the book, Frank Lloyd Wright's Rosenbaum House: The Birth and Rebirth of an American Treasure.

I had encouraged her to read the dialogue ensuing about the prospect of Rosenbaum being for sale. Afterward, she replied ...

"Thank you so very much for the reply and for giving the site to read other's comments about the quote by a local Mayoral candidate. .... I appreciate hearing what folks are saying .... the house is fine and not in peril and neither is the City of Florence...we are in the middle of building a 15 million sports complex .... repaving all the city streets, building a river walk ..... all things cities do without when the are in financial trouble .... "

We will have the honor of meeting Barbara next Wednesday when we tour the Rosenbaum house. My parents had the privilege of visiting the Rosenbaum house when Mildred Rosenbaum still lived there. Barbara commented personally, "Your parents were lucky to get a tour by Mimi Rosenbaum, she was the best."

With all Barbara has devoted to the restoration, I suspect she could well be considered "next best!"

Thanks. That's the kind of good news and close communion that Wright Chat thrives on.

Now, enjoy that second-generation Rosenbaum tour. And (as always) "let us in the back door" afterward. . .!
