Some more info and photos from the Boulanger house – the location of the casting call for the upcoming movie with Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts “August: Osage County”. Also the posts includes articles which you can check below:
The movie “August: Osage County” is officially coming to the county that inspired the play, which the film screenplay has been based on.
The film crew recently set up headquarters in Bartlesville, just outside Osage County, but the historic Boulanger home north of Pawhuska was recently purchased by August OC Film, according to a land deed.
The home and 22 acres, including several barns and ponds sold by Michael and Deborah McKinney, went for the asking price of $250,000. The deed was mailed to August OC Film at a Burbank address.
The Boulanger home was last sold in 2005 for $202,000. In 2000, the house was used as a bed and breakfast.
The soon-to-be filmed “August: Osage County”, which stars Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, and is produced by George Clooney, will more than likely have a few scenes from the historic home, which was built in 1918.
A little bit of history and information about the Boulanger house. This home is situated southwest of the town Boulangler on 22 acres(mol) and was built for the town’s founder and his wife, Isaac Walter & Grace(sharp) Boulanger. Home was built in 1918 and has 2592 sq ft. The home, somewhat colonial in architecture with huge white pillars and an upstairs gallery all around the house, has always been a showplace. What most do not know about this home, however, is that it was a sears, roebuck & co home. It resembles there modern home #102 with some changes. On the upstairs level, rather than having a window in front of house, there is instead a doorway, due to upstairs porch. They opted to have wrap-around porches on the two main levels of the house, creating the need for a taller house to allow for the overhang of the roof to cover the top porch, while at the same time creating a third story, an attic, which was large enough to hold dances in, and the Boulangers did. Home has a large dining room, large parlor and a large kitchen. Home has a basement that was dug by hand and they carried the dirt out by the bucket loads. Basement has both access from inside and outside. When the basement was completed, a big furnace was place there to heat the home, and the house now boasted four stories – three above ground and one below. Because the house was built at the time of the early automobile, it had one of the very first four-car garages ever built in the area.
