Heritage House Update

Heritage House Update

The siding and trim is now being replaced on the Heritage House Museum.  In September the material supplier was selected and notified they would be providing the materials. On October 23rd a final review meeting was held by the installers and the lumber company salesperson. This meeting identified some additional items needed for the job. The additional expense was approved by a vote of the Board. The additional cost was paid and the material was delivered on Thursday October  24th. Work by Duda Constuction began after the delivery. Half of the siding on the south side of the museum was then removed. Work will continue weather permitting. Please contact Bob Flower if you have any questions regarding this project.

This is a major expense for SHS, so any donations to this effort will be greatly appreciated.

2018 Harvest Festival

Thank you to all volunteers who participated in our recent annual  Harvest Festival, held September 29th and 30th. The weather was great and we had many returning and new craft vendors.  Attendees enjoyed the music (Rock Salt and Nails on Saturday and Dale Galgozy on Sunday), historic buildings and exhibits,  farm animals, concessions, pop-up Library, pumpkin painting, wood carvers, blacksmiths, chair caner, and of course, the hay wagon ride and stirring of the apple butter.
