It was always a pleasure to chat with her; her later years were difficult, but she and her cat were always there. Wonder what will now become of the store; it is on the US National Historic register;That is sad. I met her once, shortly after she purchased Buzby's, I was showing a friend around the Pines for the first time and we had a nice chat. I still have a couple of her autographed books from that day.
That now depends on Marilyn's estate, if she has one. Folks think that there are restrictions on what an owner can do to a register listed home. Unless the state enacted restrictions, there are none from the feds. If she had no heirs, the legal waterfall will begin and may ultimately result in it going to auction for taxes.I wonder how much farther it will drop? In spite of all the romanticizing by people in that thread, there obviously just isn't any interest in that property.
