Preservation Maryland Preservation Associate, Michelle Eshelman, transformed on-site measurements at Shafer Farm into a SketchUp model that can be used to show floor plans, sections, and really illustrates the Civil War-era structure’s unique stairwell configuration.
At the Shafer Farm in historic Burkittsville, Maryland, Preservation Maryland partnered with the Durable Slate Company to help patch the historic roof and keep the water out as the fundraising begins to pay for a total rehabilitation.
We’re asking you – all of you – to help put a new roof on the important South Mountain Battlefield farmstead at the Shafer Farm. Our $2,500 fundraising goal will off-set the cost of a crew of roofers from the Durable Slate Company to make the roof last through the winter and until a proper rehabilitation project can begin. Can you help?
