Celebrities Back Construction Of Long Lost Frank Lloyd Wright Boathouse

A unrealized 1905 design by Frank Lloyd Wright is resurrected from the dead -- celebrities donate money to help fund the construction, which will be erected on the shores of Lake Erie.

"Arm-twisting by award-winning television writer and native son Tom Fontana has brought in money for the project from an impressive roster of show business luminaries...The boathouse and gas station will join another previously unrealized Wright project, the Blue Sky Mausoleum in Forest Lawn, completed in 2004, and the landmark Darwin Martin House and Graycliff estate, both undergoing multimillion-dollar restorations, as must-see Wright destinations."
