Filley Stone Barn Preservation Project 

We have the window wells, the barn door, and the mason work completed! Thanks to our generous donors! We just have a few more mason projects on the barn to complete because the first time around they found a few more issues that need to be taken care. We also are raising money for our Cottage Hill Farm Outdoor Classroom which will be located on site. This outdoor classroom will be used for summer camps, Pioneer days, and other activities put on by the society. We are raising $26,000 for the outdoor classroom and an additional $2000 for the mason work. If you would like to donate to this project, please give the museum a call.
