The enthusiasm, hard work, and generosity of so have many enabled FoWB to complete all three Phases of the Ellwood Restoration Project. During the winter of 2011, Blue Mountain Builders and Two Worlds Renovations carried out the plans of historian/architect, Anthony Bochicchio, and restored the four bedrooms, Phase III of the project.
The transformation of the house is miraculous, considering that at one point its interior was a maze of open walls, deteriorating plaster, and timbers ravaged by insects. FRSP took on the infrastructure responsibilities but turned to FoWB to accomplish the finer aspects of the project.
Although restoration maintenance will continue to be a focus, FoWB is now looking at the landscape beyond.
It is an extremely gratifying endeavor. Ellwood Manor is an integral component of American history. Through preservation and restoration, the house and surrounding grounds become the best of teaching tools, an unequaled learning experience.
