The Trogdon House will be renovated!

How wonderful that our Tarleton president and his wife, the Dottavios, have elected to renovate the Trogdon House and live in it! It is a beautiful home and a Tarleton treasure. I was shocked to learn that there was serious consideration given to demolishing this home some years ago (thanks for the info, Thomas Schilb!) Do not tell Dallas, but new is not automatically better. And sometimes, saving and renovating is the very greenest option.

The United States is blessed with many significant historical sites, but we lose some every year. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has published its 22nd Annual List of Endangered Sites. You can help preserve them!

Spend your summer saving something wonderful! Tarleton is showing you how it is done.
