Town and Country Log Cabin Preservation, Home Demolition Underway
Demolition is underway on a home along Conway Road where a log cabin sits inside. See photos, plus a video detailing the preservation and history of the cabin.
As previously reported by Patch, Alderman Skip Mange, with the help of others, worked to raise the $12,000 needed for the removal of a log cabin found inside a Town and Country home scheduled for demolition.
Demolition of the home encompassing the cabin is underway. The actual disassembly of the log cabin takes place Monday. Right now the exposed cabin is wrapped in tarps to protect it from the winter weather and expected storm on Thursday.
Although the money was raised to begin the process, more money is still needed for the entire preservation of the cabin, including its reassembly.
Mange is now working on the grant application process to pay for the remainder of the project, however, he said those grants will require local matches in funding.
Donations can me made directly to the Town and Country Historical Society.
