|Post subject:||Restoration of the Pavillon Frais|
The American Friends of Versailles was partly founded on these brotherly principles: the president, Catherine Hamilton, is a sworn Francophile who started the group in 1999 after wandering through Versailles and finding the Trois Fontaines Bosquet in utter disarray. There, the inspiration to help restore Louis XIV’s seat of political power — piece by piece — was born.
Having brought the Fontaines back to its old glory, the AFV this year turned its attention to the restoration of the Pavillon Frais, a two-year, $2 million effort that was celebrated last Friday night with a stellar party at Versailles.
