Welcome to the Willis Russell Historic Site

The Boyle Landmark Trust is now waiting on the contractors to begin the first stage of restoration of the Willis Russell Cabin and they are supposed to start in early October.  The cabin will go through a process of leveling the structure by jacking it up and replacing the rotten logs at the corners.  Doors and windows will be removed and also the brick part of the chimney will be removed.  That is just the beginning and then we will go from there.  The hope is that while the cabin is being dismantled, students would have an opportunity to visit and see how early log homes were constructed.  That all has to be coordinated when work begins. 

Anyone interested can gain more information by calling Barbara Hulette at 859-239-0038.
