The Estate of the Late Bud and Rae Koch of Rockville, Md.
 
Bud and Rae Koch moved to Rockville from Baltimore in 1954 as Bud had been hired away from the Baltimore Sun to the Washington Post Advertising Art Department.  They left the city of their childhood but brought with them their love for the Colonial era antiques.  They built their collection from local antique shops in the Montgomery and Howard County as well as the Shenandoah Valley and the Appalachian North Carolina.

Their primary focus was furniture, glassware and quilts.  Rae’s involvement in quilting led to her membership and eventual Presidency of the American Quilters Association.  Bud’s 35 years with the Washington Post helped fund their interests.  Bud’s skills as an antique furniture repair and refinishing craftsman were evident in their home’s collection.

Rae served in the National Park Service for 25 years at the Historic “Old Stone House” on M Street in Georgetown, where she introduced “living history” to that unique Park Service Site.  This “Ambassador of Georgetown” as she came to be known, was friend to homeless Vietnam Veterans, as well as Mayors of D.C. and Presidents wives.  She entertained foreign dignitaries and had “Rae Koch Day” officially proclaimed by Mayor Marian Barry.  Rae’s expertise as a Park Service Site Supervisor was enriched by her people skills, and multiple talents.  She created her colonial dresses, quilted, and made candles.  She excelled at weaving, spinning yarn, cooking and baking over an open fireplace, and mentoring of volunteers.
