front page article today, Sunday, on the Veblen House and the Rogers House--another county-owned historic building that has fallen into disrepair. (It's early morning, and I first wrote "fallen into repair". Wouldn't that be nice.) It's a well-written article with a big photo of the house in the print version. Note that the online version has one photo of the cottage that may still be labeled "Veblen House". The cottage is the 1870 Dauer farmhouse that Veblen acquired in 1936 and used as a study. It's just a few hundred feet from the house, which they bought some years later. If you click on the other online photos--there's a series of twelve--you'll find photos of the house as well.
You can find information on this website about the Veblens, the house and cottage, and the initiative to save them by clicking on the various tabs. Below are a couple links to overviews of the site, and what it looked like when the Veblens were living there.
