Related to yesterday’s story of the Laurent House grant, “Preservation Nation”, the blog for the National Trust For Historic Preservation, has posted an interview of John Groh, a founder of the Laurent House Foundation, the group hoping to buy and open to the public the Laurent House.
From the interview:
Our intention is to showcase the home “as is,” and want visitors to be able to really experience the home as Mr. and Mrs. Laurent and their family have. Mr. Laurent credits the home with helping him live a long, full life. We hope that this home and its design will be an inspiration to the new generation of wounded soldiers returning home from war, and hope it will inspire architects and builders to more fully integrate accessible design moving forward.
