Bush restoration to reflect 1950s family life

The prospects of the George W. Bush Childhood Home becoming a national Midland monument that would be restore precisely to its 1950s Bush years is making progress under sponsorship of the Permian Basin Board of Realtors. The concept has gained its non-profit corporation status through the Texas Secretary of State and is awaiting its tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service, said Bill Scott, a Midland Realtor who is president of the George W. Bush Childhood Home, Inc.

Midland Mayor Bobby Burns, who is chairman of The Sky’s The Limit Committee which has endorsed the project, recently told Scott that the Realtors “have our thanks and admiration. We want to help in anyway we can.”

The Realtors are purchasing the house from its owner, Mark Edmiaston, an American Cancer Society Dallas-based executive who in 1993, while living in Midland, had purchased the house and was then unaware of its Bush connection.

“He has a real sense of community,” Scott said of Edmiaston. “We are very happy.”
