Thursday, December 15 is the day the Laurent House will be auctioned (unless it is sold earlier). This article from the Wisconsin State Journal has a nice summary of the basics, if you haven’t followed the story.

Not mentioned is the efforts of the Laurent House Foundation to raise enough money to purchase the house and turn it into a museum. The does quote Sidney Robinson who believes the house should remain a house:

Sidney Robinson, Taliesin’s preservation coordinator, believes the house should remain a residence and not become a museum.

“I think it should be lived in,” Robinson said. “It should be somebody who values it and is willing to take care of it.”
