About 8 months ago the Kent Historical Society made a request of the Tree City Carvers. It seems they were in need of some small architectural pieces to complete the restoration of the new home of the organization.
Well, they came to the right place! In the course of the following months various members of the Kent-based carving club recreated over 20 pieces to match the original moldings that had been cut off by previous residents of the building to accommodate a drop ceiling for offices.
Since the Historical Society took over the building, (a beautiful Victorian house with historic significance), they have restored it back to it’s original splendor. In part, thanks to the craftsmanship of the Tree City Carvers.
To thank the carvers for their fine work the Society hosted the Club’s April 21 meeting at the Restored house giving club members a tour of the whole place and offered home made cookies and punch for refreshments.
It was a lovely evening for all who attended, and speaking for the carvers, I would like to thank Historic Society members; Pres. Jack
Amrhein, and Co-directors; Lorie Bednar and Julie Kenworthy who were our gracious hosts.
The Museum is open to the public and is located at 237 East Main St.
