Fence and Walk

Over the past month, the Iles House has acquired a new west and south face, consisting of a white picket fence and a laid sidewalk. The contractor for both projects is Tom Bundy, seen above speaking with Ann Hart, and below surveying the jobs as they near completion.

These additions, built with traditional materials and hands-on skills, continue our progress toward complete restoration of the House to its 1840s appearance.

Coming Attraction: on the evening of July 7, the Iles House will host an 1850s Strawberry Party. This event will precede an outdoor movie to be shown in the Lincoln Home area.
