We were able to recover one of the original mantles (see pictures below) from the house and we will be keeping it in storage until it is ready to reinstalled in it's original location.
If anyone has any old photographs of the house, from either the interior or exterior, please send us a copy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures like these help us in the restoration process to make the house as historically accurate as possible.
If anyone knows of anyone or has access to any architectural elements, pieces or furniture from the original house, please let us know so that we can contact these people and see if they would be willing to donate these items if effort to bring as much of the original house back where it belongs.
