Yes, it costs more to live in a historic home and it carries special burdens. But no steward that I know is in it to flip it.
A current project inventory and links to posts and images.
Neighbors, friends and the historically curious are invited to attend a presentation - chock full of photographs, tales of stewardship and mysterious backstories - about the historic Elizabeth Murphy House, the only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in Shorewood, Wisconsin.
Stewardship is not a product of special oversight placed on historic homes. It comes, instead, from a shared commitment to storytelling, passed between generations.
Since the house originally had no drive, garage or carport, a garage was added in 1976. It was both practical and necessary to the preservation of the house.
