Archive for July, 2010
To our knowledge there have never been any reports of ghosts or unusual paranormal activity at McAllister House Museum. But to be sure, the night of July 9, 2010 The Night Team, a group of well trained and experienced paranormal investigators based out of Colorado Springs, CO set up their equipment and did an investigation of the Museum. Several members of the McAllister House Committee were on hand to help and watch and learn. The cameras were left running all night so stay tuned to see if anything was discovered. It will be several weeks before all the evidence can be studied and analyzed.
We are so excited about a donation by the After Hours Garden Club. They are updating and improving the landscaping of the museum this summer. The plan has been thoroughly researched and is in keeping with the Victorian era. The front and south gardens are being worked on: the garden club is donating the plants, materials and labor for the project. Drive by to see how lovely the front of the house is looking!
For the second summer in a row, Organically Grown Lawn Service has donated five weed and fertilizer treatments. The lawn is looking weed-free and healthy this year.
The Front Range Herb Society continues to maintain the herb garden by the kitchen. It is particularly beautiful this year!
EL POMAR FOUNDATION
We are extremely grateful to the El Pomar Foundation which has given us another operating grant and supports us so much and in so many ways. El Pomar has been an important aspect of McAllister House Museum since its founding fifty years ago!
