The Mouse family owned the Cross House from 1929 to 1960.
The granddaughters of Scott Mouse, Sr. have been frequent guests since I purchased the house in 2014, and I always enjoy spending time with Lindy and Merryl.
A few weeks ago, Merryl sent me a MOST tantalizing email.
She had a framed copy of the architect’s original drawing of the main facade of the house. Would I be interested in having it?
I replied: YES!!!!!!!!
Today, Merryl and Lindy stopped by. With the drawing.
I was quite agog.
I have an incomplete set of drawings. #1 was one of the missing drawings. To have it find its way back to the house is quite amazing.
Neither Merryl or Lindy recalled any history on the drawing. Merryl was surprised to even discover it.
In studying the drawing, several interesting aspects are revealed.
It’s SO exciting having this important drawing return to the Cross House.
THANK YOU Merryl and Lindy!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
