A recent edition of the Straus Family Newsletter tells the history of the relationship of Roger Williams Straus and Gladys Guggenheim Straus - and thus makes reference to their summer home in the Catskills, a site that all Frost Valley people know and love. That is of course the estate along the East Branch of the Neversink River that Frost Valley acquired from the Straus family in the 1970s, and which served for many years under the name "Straus House" or "Straus Family Center" or, for short, just "Straus." Now of course the building and the property serve as the East Valley Ranch (EVR for short), the location of our equestrian camp for girls.
