We reported last month on the crumbling of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed planters that mark the entry to the (also Wright-designed) Ravine Bluffs Development in Glencoe, IL. Well, word's come from restoration architect, John Eifler, on the effort to raise funds from architecture lovers everywhere to restore these unique monuments.

John writes:

"The Glencoe Historical Society will be accepting donations (501c3) for the restoration of ALL 3 of the Ravine Bluffs Markers, though the planter at Sylvan and Franklin is the most pressing project. The restoration cost of this marker is $16,000 and includes stripping of paint, installation of drains, concrete repair and reactivation of the light fixture.

If there are any kind, caring people who would like to donate anything (even $5!) it would be greatly appreciated. We would like to accomplish the work before the cold sets in, and before it gets worse. Please send your donations to:

The Glencoe Historical Society
377 Park Avenue Glencoe, IL 60022–1551
and write "Ravine Bluffs Planter" on the check.

Your help is greatly appreciated."
