In 1762, then-pioneers opened the first iron furnace on the Yellow Breeches Creek. In the more than 250 years since, the building — long after it stopped being used for commercial purposes — still stands. Great story about a community working together to preserve their heritage. If there is a historic building or structure in your community that is in danger and means something to you, do not hesitate to make your voice heard. These places are important, and it is becoming more difficult to see that they are taken care of appropriately while insuring their stories last for several years to come!

South Middleton Township is starting phase three — and arguably the most important phase — of a three-part plan to preserve the historic furnace: stabilizing and preventing further deterioration to the structure.

Just got back from Virginia Beach to see this Hemp House we've been supplying the material for. The roady crew fortunately missed the NE snow Storms while at VA Beach but back to reality now and the news flash that we are open at LimeWorks HQ!! Thanks to the base camp crews back home who stayed behind to plow and shovel out LimeWorks HQ. Our gratitude. Way to go!!

We get a lot of calls from homeowners who own historic homes and have several questions regarding correct materials and processes necessary to insuring the lifetime of their home. This is a nice list put together by the National Trust for Historic Preservation on what to consider when you are between restoring or rehabilitating your historic home. Both options take into consideration the respect involved in considering the home's past and making choices that don't alter the materials, colors, and textures found on the original exterior.

Should you restore or rehabilitate your house? Your decision will influence the house’s finished character, the project cost, and the amount of time it takes.

The scale of the project seemed almost too intimidating, but despite the burden, the History that took place in this building was reason enough to inspire a heartfelt rescue and community effort to restore the Union Block Building in Mount Pleasant, Iowa.

Little tip: Just as the heat from a septic tank would show where the tank and distribution box would be by first melting the snow where it is located in the yard you can sometimes see the footprint of historic outbuilding foundations on a property at an early morning frost or light snow layering. The masonry under the earth transfers ground heat up to the surface to outline where the ruins of the remaining foundation is. This doesn't replace ground penetrating radar but it may call for a study using GPR when someone who was observant first sees these clues to discover the evidence of outbuildings no one knew were once there.

Constructed on the heels of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the 511 is one of Portland's first steel-frame buildings. Architect Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architects preserved key historic features that had been covered up after the post office moved out, including an enormous atrium, 39 arched first-floor windows, and a grand corridor with marble-lined walls and Neoclassical ceiling flourishes.

There are other sustainable economic strategies, but heritage conservation has proven to be one of the best and longest-lasting. There is scarcely a city in Europe or the Americas that has not seen an economic “boom” from its historic buildings, it seems every town has a historic district that has turned into an economic engine.

The presidential race is not the only race going on in Washington, DC:

“The US Capitol dome is a symbol of democracy around the world and the AOC [Architect of the Capitol] is committed to preserving it for future generations."

http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jan/11/washington-capitol-dome-restoration-race-against-time-2017-inauguration


The man in charge of mending the 1,300 cracks in the cast-iron dome is confident but Donald Trump has suggested work will not be finished a year from now
