The Restoration of Kimmswick
Many old buildings that had played such a vital part in early Kimmswick history were gradually disappearing. It was the glaring loss of these historic buildings that generated in the mind of Lucianna Gladney-Ross the idea of the restoration project. In 1970, the restoration began, with several of the old homes being renovated, with many more to follow. A unique feature of this renovation project can be seen on the blocks bound by Second, Elm, Third and Oak Streets. Old Log buildings were moved there from other areas that they too, might be preserved. (Read more about Lucianna Gladney-Ross)
