Penn State Habitat for Humanity members came on Sunday to work on the transportation museum building and the old armory, which have been gutted, and new insulation was recently put in. With guidance from Bob and some other experienced workers, they got to try their hands at cutting and putting up drywall in the two rooms. This has been the first experience working with drywall for many, so naturally it proved a little challenging, but our members were absolutely up to the task. Habitat member Alysha Kelyman said, "I had no experience with dry wall but I was still able to help put it up. This experience was definitely worthwhile, I learned a lot!"
After the work day, Bob was able to give Habitat members a short tour of the Columbus Chapel on the property. He gave members a brief history of Christopher Columbus and the 8 generations of the related Boal Family that owned the property, and how the museum came to be.
Our Penn State Habitat members plan to travel out to the Boal Mansion Museum at least two more times in the coming week, and hope to finish the work we already started there; follow us through this unique project and stay tuned for more!
