The historic house originally featured pieces of "carpenter's lace", or fretwork spandrels, in three of the doorways of the house. These pieces have been removed, and their current locations, if they still exist, are unknown.
In the hopes of restoring these original features of the historic house, CCHS reached out to the Central Oklahoma Woodturners Association (COWA). COWA members will be volunteering their time to recreate these stunning fretwork pieces over the next two years.
This project could not be completed without public support. Thanks to the generosity of Norman and Cleveland County residents, the restoration has been fully funded!
