Dear Friends, Donors, and Preservationists,
We are excited to announce the release of our 2017 Annual Report! This special report features a memorial to CAHPT founder Dick Jenrette, who passed away in April of 2018.
The cover of this report features the double parlors at Roper House. The Roper House is featured prominently in this report in honor of the 50th anniversary of Dick’s career in preservation, which began in 1968 with his purchase of the house. Historic photos dating back to the 1870s and through the present illustrate the house’s history through the Siegling, Guggenheim, Hastie, and Jenrette eras.
Buddy Jenrette, the newly appointed CAHPT Chairman, introduces the report and writes of his memories of his late uncle and his excitement for the future of Classical American Homes. Dick’s review of the 2017 financials is featured and CAHPT Co-Presidents Margize Howell and Peter Kenny reflect on a busy year and reasons to celebrate preservation.
Thank you for your interest and support!
The staff at Classical American Homes Preservation Trust
