This House Matters - A Documentary
This House Matters – A Documentary 

Blink and another house is bulldozed. Most don’t even notice. If you read this blog, likely you do. That’s why I’m making a documentary that explores the complexities of historic preservation. Right now, I have a trailer and an indiegogo fundraising
campaign, and I need help to make this film. IndieGoGO funding link. http://igg.me/at/thishousematters.

This House Matters, my film, matters to anyone who has ever lived in, admired, cared about, spent time in, or saved an historic house.  

History is more than what we find in museums. History exists in brick and mortar. It’s in the details, in the architecture and the vernacular of buildings. It’s in heritage gardens. On swaths of land that have been inhabited by colonists for nearly three hundred years in a country that is not even that old.

It is one thing to read about our history in books, or see copies of artifacts in a local library. It is quite another to experience them in living color, to run your hand along
a Dutch sandstone wall or trace your finger on a “1752” foundation stone or walk land that was farmed for 200 years.

Old houses are more than old, falling-down, dilapidated, lost structures. They represent the story of what we lose: irreplaceable, precious links to our history.

Please Help Me Spread The Word

It takes money, time and commitment to save old houses. And ideally political because when elected officials understand the importance and the opportunity these structures present, there is a better chance that they will be preserved and rehabilitated to benefit the public. My film, This House Matters, will be an excellent tool to spread the word about this collective need, and hopefully, through awareness and dialogue, inspire government officials, historic advocates, nonprofit foundations, history teachers, and benefactors to step up, to take action, to fight for these projects.
