    Cellar Repair – the need

    April 9th, 2012


    The collapse of what was probably the old coal chute in McAllister’s cellar!

    The cellar at McAllister House Museum is not open to the public but holds our furnace and is used for storage.  Over the past few years the old coal chute which had been covered on the outside by a metal cover began to collapse, causing the plaster and wood lathe in the cellar to deteriorate and dirt to begin falling into the cellar.  Much longer and we’d have had water intrusion.  So we’ve been raising money and have applied for a grant from the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution to cover the costs of the repair.
