We’re keeping busy this winter planning for the summer and continuing with our preservation work indoors on the the Olsen interpretive center. Picking out colors for the walls. Jack Boss is repairing a section of floor in the kitchen – looks beautiful! Next – he’ll trim out the pantry/basement doorway and we’re ordering a new front door! It will keep the cold out (finally!) but will match the woodwork. Painting will commence in late march – early April. Don’t forget – WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT FOR OUR FUNDRAISING LICENSE PLATE Click LATEST NEWS for a link to TAKE ACTION!
