Boyle Landmark Trust
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.
