The Rosemary Clooney House, Inc.
is a non-profit foundation headed by Dr. Steve Henry, former KY
Lt. Gov., and his wife, Heather French Henry, former Miss America
(who was born in Augusta).
The foundation was established to preserve Rosemary Clooney's house,
to open it to the public and to house memorabilia from her life and career.
1980 Rosemary began calling Augusta's 106 Riverside Drive home. Located on the
banks of the Ohio River in historical Augusta, KY, this was her
retreat from the demands of her career and a haven for rest between
performances all over the world.
Rosemary's passing, her children approached
the Henrys about purchasing the home. They
did so enthusiasticly and since that time
have devoted extraordinary time and resources
to preserving the home and acquiring artifacts
related to Rosemary's life and career.
the help of Paramount Studios, Nick &
Nina Clooney, Gail & Chris Darley, countless
volunteers, and numerous corporate
and private sponsors, the house held it's "soft
opening" on June 4, 2005 and it's "grand opening" on October
modest home on the banks of Rosemary's
beloved Ohio River has been visited by thousands
of fans from all over the world. The Henrys
are so pleased that they have been able
to contribute to preserving Rosemary's legacy,
introduce many to the quaint little river-town
she so adored, and preserve so much memorabilia
that might otherwise have been lost.
