We also received help from the Pomeroy Foundation and other generous individuals. Given the recent guidance, we are pleased to announce that we will open for the season…

By Constable Hall on May 22, 2019
Our many pre-opening activities are finished and we are ready for visitors. The mallards are swimming in our pond; come and visit them and us. It takes a lot of work to open the Hall after a North Country winter – cleaning the interior, preparing the gardens, cleaning up the grounds, turning on the water, putting out the tables and benches, etc. South Lewis class members came by today and helped enormously with various chores.…
