By Preservation Maryland

A piece of pure roadside Maryland was lost earlier this year with the demolition of the Cozy Inn, but the Thurmont Historical Society worked hard to save an original roadside cabin. The small cabin would have been used by early 20th century highway travelers, and you can be a part of it’s restoration!

BE PART OF THE RESTORATION AND LEARN HISTORIC WINDOW RESTORATION

Douglas Claytor, expert wood worker and founder of the Claytor Historic Preservation Institute, has participated in the restoration of important historic buildings across Maryland, including at Antietam Battlefield, Monocacy Battlefield, and is restoring Wyndemer House as part of the Department of Natural Resources’ Resident Curatorship Program.

HANDS-ON, EDUCATIONAL 1/2 DAY WORKSHOP IN THURMONT

Preservation Maryland and the Thurmont Historical Society invite you to participate in the restoration of the Cozy Inn Cabin led by Douglas Claytor. Attendees can expect to learn essential information about window restoration from start-to-finish with the opportunity for hands-on experience – and bring your questions about your restoration projects, window and otherwise, for Douglas to answer.

This workshop will resonate with historic home owners, historic site stewards, and all those in history and preservation looking to get a sense of the work and skill involved in expert historic restoration! Students welcome.

Please dress appropriately for being outside in warm weather. Feel free to bring a camping/folding or other outdoor chair. Drinking water and restroom facilities will be available inside of the Historical Society. A box lunch is included in the registration cost.
