Is Santa visiting your house this Christmas?

Happy Holidays!!

“It's the most wonderful time of the year …with the kids jingle-belling, and everyone telling you "Be of good cheer…"

This being the most wonderful time of year got me thinking about Santa. Kids believe Santa climbs down the chimney, but how can he do that without a fireplace? See, there is another great benefit of living in a historic house. Your kids can actually believe you. (So while preservation may be the most sustainable and green way of living, it’s all the little details of historic properties make the experience even more enriching!)

A lot of activities and end-of-the-year celebrations are happening at The Landmark Society, along with planning for some incredible things to come in 2010. We would like to thank all of our members, readers, supporters, fans and friends for their generosity and interest. It is only because of you all that we are able to do such great work and be an important resource for our community. We wish you all very happy holidays!

A preservationist nightmare occurred when the famous Snowflake Motel was demolished in St. Joseph Michigan on the shore of Lake Michigan. The historic Snowflake Motel was designed in 1961 by Frank Lloyd Wright and protege son-in-law William Wesley Peters. The building designed in 1961 held a place on the National Register of Historic Places but was torn down to make a place for real estate development.
