Heritage Society

Exterior restoration of the 4th Ward Cottage began early this fall and has led to some exciting discoveries. The c.1866 cottage, which has undergone numerous additions and alterations, contains layers and layers of history. To determine the original and subsequent paint colors of the 4th Ward Cottage, Jhonny Langer worked with The Heritage Society to uncover the first layer of paint.

During his paint analysis, Langer discovered many interesting things about the original construction of the cottage and changes that were made over the years.

Join to follow the discovery of these finds and hear about the progress being made on the restoration of this historic cottage.
