Farm House Renovation - Summer 2019
When the Gateway Museum was bequeathed the Bogardus Farm in 2016- a farm house came with the property. This stone house was built in 1835 and badly needed to be repaired and upgraded. Fortunately for the Museum and the community a local citizen came forwarded and provide funds to do a large amount of renovation work. For the last year (working only in summer/fall) the work has progressed nicely
The pictures to the right show the work that is currently going on ( pictures taken 6/23/19)
Using lots of volunteer labor- the progress will continue. Anyone interested in helping out should just stop by the house any day. There is always someone there working on the project.
