Edwards Place Renovation

August 01, 2014 8:36 AM | Anonymous

Most all of you are aware that Edwards Place is undergoing a major restoration and that funding is being solicited towards that goal.  What you might have missed is that in addition to the fundraisers out front and the restorers doing their thing behind, there are two sleuths digging around the walls and foundations of the old house and revealing its long held secrets with great delight.  

Erika Holst, Curator at Edwards Place and archaeologist Robert Mazrim have been reveling in their "finds" and Erika has recorded them in an ongoing blog.  Her writing reflects her infectious enthusiasm for the task and the reader almost feels as if he or she is part of the discovery process.

If you are an old house history buff, a "want-to-be" archaeologist, or just want to have some fun reading, check out Erika's blog at:
