Rebuilding Mullanphy

Some work has resumed on the Mullanphy Emigrant Home. The south wall is being deconstructed so foundation repairs can start. A new foundation will eventually be poured on the south wall to support the new concrete blocks that will be layed to close up the wall. The bricks are being taken down one by one and put onto pallets along with the bricks that already had fallen. These bricks will be saved and used along with “new” used bricks to rebuild the wall. The north wall will not need a new foundation, and concrete blocks can be set on top of the existing wall.

Your contributions to the stabilization and rebuilding effort still are very much needed. Original estimates for rebuilding the damaged walls alone amounted to approximately $350,000. Visit for more information on how to contribute and more information about the historical significance of the Mullanphy Emmigrant home, or you can just click the PayPal Button on the right side of the blog. You can also track the fundraising progress on the Mullanphy Meter.

Below are pictures of the work taken on July 16, 2007.
