The Numbers

The Farnsworth House Steering Committee had a very productive meeting last week. The Committee consists of members from Landmarks Illinois Board of Directors and staff, as well as staff from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. We toured the house and property allowing some to see the aftermath of the devastating flood on September 14. Needless to say, everyone is very eager to move forward with the two highest priorities:
Saving the House from the damage it sustained in the flood
Opening the House for tours as soon as possible

Last week also brought a visit from our insurance adjuster and a wood conservator who will provided much-needed guidance on the work needed for the primavera wood core and teak wardrobe.

We are very close to quantifying the damage to the House. We estimate Landmarks Illinois will lose over $90,000 in revenue with the House being closed for the rest of the 2008 visitor season. A very rough estimate of approximately $400,000 will be the cost to fix all damage caused by the flood.

Due to the significant loss of critical revenue, we are evaluating the possibility of an abbreviated tour program yet this year, but it’s still just a bit too early to tell if this is a real possibility. Stay tuned to our website for updates.

Your donations are very much appreciated and needed as we continue to work. Thank you to everyone who is mentioning us in your blogs and sending people our way for financial support. The emotional, technical, and monetary assistance have all been touching and sincerely appreciated and we hope it continues.
