About the Presenter


Frances Middendorf is a member of CDA Chapter X – Rome, Italy, and courtesy member of the Parent Chapter. In 1959, her father bought the Rhode Island farm that housed the then-called “Betty Alden House.” The house was built by Betty and her husband William Pabodie in 1680 for their only surviving son, William Pabodie, Jr. The farm has been owned by only four families in its 340 year history.


Frances Middendorf teaches drawing and art in Rome and Rhode Island and has a great passion for architectural and art history.
