The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens, in partnership with the Friends of Casa Feliz and the Winter Park Historical Association, along with a leadership committee comprised of preservation-minded citizens, announce the official launch of a fundraising campaign to preserve the historic Capen House of Winter Park.
The official kick-off event for the fundraising campaign has tentatively been slated for Thursday, August 8, at the Polasek Museum at 12 noon.
Donate to the Keep The Capen House campaign!
The Capen House was built in 1885 by one of Winter Park’s founding fathers, James Seymour Capen. The plan is to transport the home from its current location on Interlachen Avenue to a large lakefront lot on the Polasek Museum property. The current owners, who delayed the demolition of the house at the request of community members, have accepted a letter of intent and will receive the final fundraising campaign proposal in the coming weeks.
