The mission of the Friends of Casa Feliz – to protect, operate and maintain the integrity of the Casa Feliz Historic Home Museum and its collections; to educate the public on the life and legacy of noted architect James Gamble Rogers II; and to engage the public through education and advocacy for the purpose of preserving and promoting the community's rich architectural, historic and cultural heritage – is timelier now than it ever has been. As a historic home museum, Casa Feliz stands as a beacon to historic preservation in Central Florida. Every person who steps through our doors, numbering more than 10,000 this year between our open houses and private rentals, leaves with an appreciation for the value of preserving our community’s architectural treasures. Our annual James Gamble Rogers II Colloquium on Historic Preservation is sponsored by the Friends of Casa Feliz, to recognize the importance of valuing and sustaining our community’s precious architectural and historic resources. We celebrate the legacy of architect Gamble Rogers (1901-1990), designer of Casa Feliz, now a home museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
