The Ennis-Brown house
may finally receive the funding necessary
to stabilize and restore the earthquake and rain-damaged
structure. Councilmember Tom LaBonge has inserted a request for FEMA money to be used to repair the home and grounds into the city's 2005-2006 Federal Legislative Program.
Hopefully the money can be found to fund this request. The loss of the Ennis-Brown house would deal a disastrous blow to L.A.'s perpetually endangered architectural heritage. This Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece is as integral a part of the Hollywood Hills vista as the Griffith Observatory, and just as deserving of a similarly well-funded restoration campaign
