The future of what to do with the cottage is up in the air after the three-commissioner Wilmette Park District committee met early this week and soured at the time frame and cost to move the cottage, estimated at $19,000.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy is still pursuing a way to save this important little cottage, though it seems more and more likely that Wilmette won't be its home in the future.

This decision is very short-sighted on Wilmette's part. If you live in Wilmette and care about your town's cultural heritage, I urge you to reach out to your elected officials and voice support for finding a way to keep this cottage in your town. All other concerned people, contact the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and lend your financial support to help save this and other important Wright-related structures.
