Whats Happening in Restoration

​​​This page shows some of the progress up to the summer of 1018.  The Bates home is being restored on the interior.  The carriage house visitor center is nearing completion.  Currently painting the interior of both buildings is being done.  The site work is in progress and leveling and seeding in the yard has been done  Sidewalks have been laid. The heating system as been installed and the electrical wiring is complete.  Yet to be worked on is the restoration of the flooring, rehanging the doors and trim, lighting fixtures and stairway installation.  Paving of the driveway is yet to be done.  Pictures of the progress appear below.

Progress has been slower than expected and the home will not likely be open for tours before mid-summer.  But progress is being made and we look forward to visitors even if the home is not open for interior tours.
