My Frances Langford theme continues. Today I will share some photos of Frances’ St Lucie River estate treasures given to me by blog reader and salvage director, Bobbi Blodgett. Bobbi recently contacted me. Not only did we have a very interesting conversation regarding the recent destruction of the Langford property and the difficulties of getting developers to “reuse and recycle,” but Bobbi also shared some good news about what was “salvaged” from the Langford Estate in 2008 when it was first being “deconstructed,” as part a tax write off for the developers via Habitat For Humanity.

Her email reads:

“Hi Jacqui,

Langford additional pics during 2008 deconstruction project. Frances was very into Polynesian style and the “tapa cloth” pictured, we salvaged also, It was all handmade and imported. It was laid on the bars, walls etc.

The long bar was in the river house. I believe it was purchased by a couple who bought the house she owned on Hutchinson Island, which is awesome.”

    I’m just dying inside…that majestic Banyan tree is gone along with everything else that was GREEN??? I have never seen anything so totally devastating before. It is tragic. Who will remember the legacy that Frances Langford left? She did so much good for Martin County. May God rest her soul.

  2. Most women see things totally different than men, I guarantee you almost every man in every country knows what an eveinrude boat motor is. When I see pictures of your lagoon barren and dead it is just as offensive(to me) as this land stripped bare,
