Dream for Families"

Picture if you will a grand historic
style ballroom, perhaps something after the fashion of Palladio or
Wren, featuring magnificent pillars and portico, marble, an expansive wooden
dance floor, spacious stage, fine sound and lighting, side galleries, an
internal/external balcony and a beautiful lobby.
And this would only be the beginning.
Educational space, a performing arts building, a bookstore / gift shop,
guest rooms, an 18th century style formal
garden, an office, a kitchen, a meeting/banquet hall, a pair of small living history
villages (18th century and 19th century) and more could all be forthcoming as well as land for working
historic agricultural exhibits, historic encampments and battle
Imagine the tremendous blessing
of such a facility in furthering our vision of utilizing heritage, education
and the arts to support Arizona families, raise the bar on the level of
culture in our area and positively impact the society around us!
Someone once said that a journey of a
thousand miles begins with one step. Millions of dollars and years of effort
could be necessary. The fruition of this process may require a long journey
but the time has come to proceed. Along these lines steps have been and are
being taken such as the formation of a new non-profit entity which will
better suit us as we step up to the next level of the vision, moving forward
as the journey continues...
Are you able to dream this
dream with me for the families of America?

Below you shall discover a number of
beautiful historic buildings as examples of the Georgian, Federal & Greek
Revival styles. It is likely that a number of elements from these examples will
come together in our Center for Heritage, Education & The Arts.
Westover Plantation 1730
Andrea Palladio 1508-1580
Father of "Palladian" architecture who greatly
influenced European and American styles over the next 250 years.
Stratford Hall 1738
Sir Christopher Wren 1632-1723
The most influential architect of his day, he helped to
rebuild London after the fire of 1666. Among his works are St. Paul's
Cathedral in London with its famed rotunda and the College of William & Mary
in Virginia. Much of Georgian architecture bears his influence.
The Governor's Palace at Williamsburg, Virginia
The frontal views to the upper and lower left show the
formal approach and two key dependencies, each of which is gabled as is the
main building. The aerial view on the upper right brings to light more
dependencies as well as the landscaping including the formal garden. The view
to the lower right reveals decorative details of the main gate and facade.

Dear Lord Scott,
What a beautiful dream. All great accomplishments start with
a dream. The ability to dream is what differentiates man from all of God's
other creations. It is men with great dreams that have changed the course
Hoping this dream becomes a reality and a blessing for many
generations to come, we pray the Lord gives you wisdom, knowledge,
understanding and patience to fulfill this aspiration.
Yours in the Lord,
Rotunda 16th Century
Palladio's masterpiece was a harbinger of both Georgian and Greek Revival
