Preservation Alliance of West Virginia will be holding a follow-up window restoration workshop in conjunction with the Entler-Weltzheimer House Rehabilitation Project in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
On Wednesday, July 16th, PAWV will again be teaming up with the Shepherd University’s Historic Preservation and Public History Program. Under the guidance of the PAWV’s Statewide Field Services Representative, Lynn Stasick, the aim of the workshop will be restoring the historic glass and reinstalling the window sashes.
This is a great chance for learning preservation techniques, as well as aiding in the restoration of this important piece of history. All of the tools and equipment will be provided. If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact Rodney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The historic Entler-Weltzheimer House is believed to be the oldest log structure in Shepherdstown. Built in the 1790s, the structure is the last remaining example of vernacular architecture in that part of Shepherdstown. The university obtained the house in 1926, converting it to a sorority house and domestic science classroom.
The follow-up workshop will be held due in part to the remaining funding which the Historic Preservation and Public History Program received from the Two Rivers Giving Circle and a matching grant from the Historic Shepherdstown Commission.
