Dreaming Away on a Cloudy Day

I can be a bit of a dreamer....I've been known to spend weekends driving up the McKenzie to look at houses falling in the river and spent many a Sunday morning driving out to an old schoolhouse (complete with original chalkboards) on River Rd wondering how these might be best restored.  Sometimes I think instead of being a florist, I ought to have gone into historic preservation. And maybe I still will. :) To my mind, there's just something inherently  wonderful about preserving an old building with lots of stories to tell.  And here's my latest fantasy/ developer's  dream. It's a little old church down the street from where I live.  It's just about the most iconic looking farm country church ever, isn't it?  The congregation is willing to give the church away to the right group.  Seems like it could make a wonderful restaurant/gallery/community space/art center/ farmer's market  or about a zillion other wonderful things.  Thought I'd post it on the blog, because it might be your dream too.
I've blogged about this church before.

  1. Wow, give it away!
    Keep me on your short list of those who would make good use of it.

    I am still hoping to create an art school/studio here in Eugene.

    Loving my peonies too,
