Scaffolding at Mullanphy

Yes, that really is scaffolding you see on the south end of the Mullanphy Emigrant Home. The Masonry Contractors Association will now be going up in the air closing up the openings with concrete block. This will hopefully take away the immediate threat to the building. However, there is still a long way to go on this project. All this work is doing is laying concrete block. Face brick and plenty more work is needed. To learn more about how you can help or just learn more about the Mullanphy Emigrant Home, head over to The resources donated so far have been depleted to accomplish this work, so the preservation effort is very much in need of your help. Tell your friends and neighbors.

Check out more photos from yesterday as well as the last year and a half on our Flickr Page in the Mullanphy Set.
