The Homeplace Double Pen House will be getting a new lease on life and it will be done in a manner that maintains the authentic views of the structure.  The fun begins on Sunday (September 18) and continues through the middle of October.

Oak shake replacement, replacement of roof decking, gutter replacement and much more will be involved.  Consider giving of your time.  Experience heritage work and work methods first hand as you make a difference for the future of the Double Pen House.  Meals, tools, and training as well as equipment and a campsite will be given to you.  You will need to provide your own transportation, sleeping equipment, work gloves, clothes and boots but what a great opportunity so close to home.

HistoriCorps has been present at the Homeplace Working Farm in the past to help refresh our vintage structure and to assist the US Forest and LBLA in maintaining the historic structures present at the Homeplace Working Farm and Agricultural Museum.  They will likely be present for future events.  Stay tuned both here and at www.Historicorps.org for knowledge of further opportunities to give back but also know that you are being a part of restoring and maintaining history that makes a difference to the visiting public.
