Morback House Museum gets a face lift!

The porch was promising to drop away when the City Fathers came to the rescue. The foundation was weak, but the contractor also discovered the porch pillars to be hollow. "They're barely strong enough to hold up the roof." he said.

They're ripping off the porch so that it doesn't fall off during History Camp or some other time when we don't expect it to.

The porch was held up by two by fours and was standing in the dirt. The dirt in Sherwood is always sinking with all the rain so the boards were sinking too. Now there will be more to hold up the porch and cement stands for the boards to be on so they will not sink as fast!

I am sure that all the raw wood will have to be primed and painted. We might not have the money to paint the whole house!!!--Mrs. Reynolds
