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. "Music at the Casa" features the work of local musicians. Hundreds of people from the community come not only to appreciate paintings and beautiful music, but also to explore the Casa Feliz historic home museum and the James Gamble Rogers II Studio which is a permanent exhibit on Casa Feliz's first floor showcasing the life and work of the preeminent Winter Park architect. Your donation will not only support future projects like these but will also help maintain the structure of Casa Feliz. As always, Casa Feliz receives no taxpayer funding, and relies wholly on rental revenue and the generous support of our patrons to meet our budget.
