With the urge to create & improve that lies within the mindset of artist, we have banded together in agreement for an alternative way of living and working by means of cooperation.From the Rozelle House's About Me: statement on their myspace page.

We as a group are creative, hardworking, and problem-solving, which is precisely what the building is in need of. Instead of it turning into a private boat storage, a pile of rubble, or a commerical strip mall, we'd like to see it become a haven for artists and community members alike. Our original idea of a simple artists co-op has evolved into thoughts of both residence and studio space, a self-sufficient garden in the immense yard, an indoor or outdoor music venue, and a community arts guild with complete facilities for photographers, potters, painters and whomever else would like to create.
They appear to have events/fundraisers fairly regularly (I got their webpage address off of an event they held last Tuesday) so be on the lookout.
