The Friends of “R” House Welcomes You to the
The Rengstorff House is Mountain View's oldest historic house. It is one of the finest examples of Victorian Italianate architecture on the west coast.
This house museum hosts many Victorian events in grand style with its elaborate Victorian antiques located though out this historic house. The antique furnishings and wall & ceiling treatments by Bradbury & Bradbury make this a true Victorian home that is not to be missed. House tours are available by docents dressed in elegant period costumes and guests are invited to stroll through its English gardens during public hours.
Located inside Shoreline at Mountain View, the Rengstorff House is surrounded by a sailing lake, wetlands and bird sanctuary.
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jen Roger and I am the recently elected President of the Friends of “R” House. I have a background in non-profit management and bring my experience from that as well as my experience in professional volunteer management to the Friends board.
As you will undoubtedly notice in the weeks and months to come, we will be looking into several new ways to grow the Friends and continue to develop the organization. One of those changes will be noticeable immediately. I am implementing a plan I have had great success with in the past. My “Talk to Jen Campaign” has worked well in the past as a tool to better facilitate a dialogue between a board and its membership. Beginning immediately you are welcome to contact me directly with your questions, comments, concerns, or even just to chat either by calling 650-868-7708 or by emailing me directly at email@example.com
Please stay tuned this web site, as well as your email inbox for announcements and further information. As always, on behalf of the board of the Friends of “R” House, we thank you for your continued support and look forward to working more with you all in the future.
