Follow along to watch the progress of this project.

This is the Marchant House in 2010 where Mildred Marchant raised her family and lived for many, many years.  When she passed, her family asked if we would like to purchase the property.

The restoration begins.

A new front sidewalk has been added.  Shrubs and other items that had been in the front yard were removed for easier access to the house and roof.
