The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Let's do it (let's fix this house)

Cole Porter's early childhood home in Peru, Indiana is getting a makeover at the hands of its new owners, the Ole Olsen Memorial Theatre, which will turn the 18-room house into part museum, part B&B.

The repairs will cost about $105,000; donations have been received for about half that sum so far.

There's a restoration blog, which for the moment has its newest posts at the bottom.
