Friends of Arthur J. E. Wren

Our Mission

We formed The Friends of Arthur J. E. Wren to help build this birdhosue, for our eponymous friend.

My friend, Arthur J.E. Wren, needed a place to retire and focus on his writing, but that's a longer story.

This house, his house, is cozy, but larger than you might expect for a wren. It is constructed chiefly of pine with some redwood, the trim is all douglas fur, and the door is oak, There are some steel structural components in the foundation. As Authur likes to take tea with friends and appreciates quiet space to read, he hopes his home is ideal for sharing these and other activities with our friends at Belden Town.

His first opend his home to visitors in Belden town July 2014 at the Priceless festival. It has been in the design stage for over a year and is currently under construction.

He also briefly hosted later that year at Moswood park adjunt to Figment Oakland

He again entertained and shared hot tea on treasure Island in October of 2015

His last outting was Woodard Reservoir September of 2016

Arthur detests the heat so the project is not intended for arid, alkali places.

Soon he plans to visit the great white north in Bear Lake Minnesota. February of 2017
