This Week's Various

Friday, November 04, 2011

The NYT has a nice piece about FLW works in Wisconsin, with slideshow.  And speaking of FLW, this $2.4MM home in Huntsville was built by someone Av knows, and went to a party there once, telling me he could not believe that I didn't go, especially since it was so FLW-reminiscent (the inspiration for the house was the Rosenbaum home in Florence).  In 2006, the home was listed at $14.4MM.

Also for sale in Huntsville right now is the Albert Erskine home (he was president of the Studebaker company).
