I'm glad that you found the website and were able to make use of it! I have not had much time to update it in the last couple years, but there is some more recent information available to add. In 2011, the house was purchased by Tim and Eva Ewers, who have since turned it into a restaurant called Le Chateau. I spoke with Eva around the time of purchase, who told me of their plans for additional restoration to the house. They have since done a beautiful job restoring the original decor, and the house looks beautiful. They have their own website as well, which may be of additional use to you, at http://www.lechateaulacrosse.com/. I don't remember if Eva included any history of the house on their site, and I think I forgot to tell her about this one. But the link should give you more information to draw from as well! :)

I really appreciate your work on this. I am a great granddaughter of Mons
Anderson and a few years ago my daughter and I had the opportunity to visit
LaCrosse, The Historical Society gave me the name of the then owner, Robert
Poehling, who invited us in and gave us a full tour of his
restoration. Fantastic! I'm so sorry it has fallen into relative neglect
since he sold it, though I gather there is now a restaurant there. I hope
the original decor has been preserved to a degree, as I gather it has from
your exhibits.

My daughter Jane MacNealy and I are creating a family archive on
Ancestry.com and will add a link to your beautiful site so other relatives
and their offspring can enjoy it.

My aunt and uncle, John and Peggy Krueger, contacted me about your website. I have a master's degree in preservation, so they knew this would be right up my alley. While it's a shame that the house is in foreclosure, it was nice to find out that at least it's been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. If you haven't already, I would recommend sharing your website with the La Crosse County Historical Society (http://www.lchsweb.org/). I'm sure they can put your hard work to good use.
