  • Thank you for such a wonderful, personal tour. The docent was extremely well-versed in the history of the home and the time period. We saw treasures we had never seen anywhere else!

    EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT

    August 5th, 2012


    Saturday, August 4, 2012 saw McAllister House filled with Scouts and friends and family as Tim Force of Troop 101 did an Eagle Scout project that benefited the Museum.  With the help of Troop 504 they downed dead trees, stained picnic benches, repainted the flaking porch and redid all the trim on the Carriage House. This involved sanding and priming and painting and hours of work.  Upon taking down a large dead tree in the front yard it was discovered it had been invaded by ants and hollowed out and most liked doomed to fall in the next heavy wind.  A tree stump in the back yard was laboriously dug out.  Paint was donated by Sherwin Williams and all this maintenance was done with absolutely no cost to the Museum!  Thank you Tim and all his helpers for a job well done!Flag
