This Week’s Various

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).

Meant to show this before: the post office in Ruleville MS is named for Fannie Lou Hamer, reported to have said, ““If I fall, I’ll fall 5 feet 4 inches forward in the fight for freedom.”
