About

I’m a graduate of the University of Florida’s historic preservation master’s degree program, and I work as an architectural historian. I also have a bachelor’s degree in journalism from UF.

I began this blog in May 2009 to chronicle the summer I spent on Nantucket. Now I write about heritage sites I have visited or historic preservation issues I find interesting.

    I am surprised we have not crossed paths. I have been researching and photographing Chert Houses for several years but only have about 110. Let’s get together.

    My husband & I own a chert house and fell in love with the architectural features of this home. We are concerned that very large commercial structure has plans to build within 100 feet from us. Have you done any work with the impact of new construction and it’s affects on nearby chert houses and their structural stability?

  6. Thank you for the well-researched and well-written entry on the Hermitage Artist Retreat. All those interested in historic preservation owe their gratitude to the good citizens of Englewood and Manasota Key who campaigned passionately to save these buildings from destruction, and to former Sarasota County Arts Council Director Patricia Caswell who had the original vision to restore and adapt these buildings to serve individual artists from around the world. Now, adding 10 years of maintenance and repair to the costs of restoration, the private citizens of our community and local foundations have contributed nearly $2 million of private money to this public asset.
