3-Day Opportunity to handle an 1856 pre-fab home. Planks, side-boards and support beams are unlike any wood available in today's lumberyard. These historic timbers are being moved within the museum. We hope to find at least 6 individuals who can lend a hand for 6 hours a day (mid-morning to mid-afternoon) for 1-3 days this week. These wood planks are long and heavy. Those who wish to participate need to be physically up to the task—able to lift 50 lbs. If interested...call the museum for details (816) 471-1856. ... See MoreSee Less

Are all pieces catalogued with dimensions available online so we can build one -if only to scale for most- as a summer project?
