Squint Shot 042412

Changes are happening in the cemetery, as shown with yesterday's new sign at the main entrance to Greenwood.  I also took a minute then to drive to the back and noticed that the old gatekeeper's house, which isn't really used for anything now, has gone through some improvements.

There is a new porch platform as well as better steps, and from what I understand, a beehive has been removed from by the chimney where quite a nest had been developed.

As a little bit of a commercial, I would like to send out a "shout-out" to anyone willing to donate to preserving our past.  Our historical collection does not have funds, which is okay, but of course we are always looking for donations for a variety of things.  For one, I would like to have a display case built that would be positioned in the council chambers where we could put items under lock-and-key.  Items would be displayed and rotated on a yearly basis, depending on what we have. 

There is also something as unique as this gatekeeper's house that needs to be renovated.

And lastly, this website has a few costs to keep it going and if anyone would like to help, it would be greatly appreciated.  I love volunteering my time, but all of these pages are being printed off to preserve for future generations.  Any donations through this site will be put to great use!

It would have been nice if the steps had been done in the same architectural style as the cottage. They look rather out of place.

I noticed the gingerbread under the eaves. It looks very similar to a house on North Second Street.
