The Currier Museum in Manchester, NH was given the Zimmerman house with an endowment for preserving it. Their company car was neat!

Yours truly waiting under the carport out of the rain.

Karen's cousin Judy started taking photos inside until told that was not allowed. This is looking down the side of the living area along the built-in seating whcih still has it's original upholstery.

The Zimmermans collected art to fill the house, usually asking FLW for permission before something was displayed. This is a Chinese folding mural.

The table in the foreground and the music stand in the back are all Taleisin designs. Even the carpets were specified for the house. A HiFi speaker enclosure is on the right.

Down the street is another FLW house, built to "keep up with the Jones" or Zimmermans in this case. This one is for sale.
