Dear friends of The Gamble House,
What an eventful year at The Gamble House! In 2013 we successfully concluded our first-ever Decorative Arts Conservation project and began work on a Cultural Landscape Report to document the evolution of the Gamble House gardens.
In the spring, hundreds enjoyed another edition of the excellent Sidney D. Gamble Lecture Series sponsored by the Friends of The Gamble House, and in May, 25 FoGH members spent seven exciting days together touring outstanding architectural sites in Northern California.
In August, for the first time ever, we offered Upstairs/Downstairs tours of the service areas in The Gamble House while the main-level oak floors were conserved to repair decades of wear and tear. Tours were sold out for three weeks!
As 2013 comes to a close we are also looking forward to a busy 2014, when we anticipate the new book on The Gamble House will be published, the Cultural Landscape Report will be drafted, and a much-awaited ‘contemplative garden,’ designed by Isabelle Greene, will be fully funded and ready for installation behind the Bookstore!
You can help make these exciting projects a reality by making a gift to The Gamble House Annual Giving Campaign. I am asking you to please be as generous as you can so that we may continue to preserve our beloved landmark and continue to make it an exciting place for the thousands who visit each year. Thank you for your past and future support!
