Preservation Day at the Burgman

LtoR: Paul Willham, Greg Drake, John Shiflet, Paul Hayden
Some very dear friends of our John and Debra Shiflet from FT Worth Texas came to visit Greg and I as part of their annual "architecture vacations". John is the Moderator of VICARR a group dedicated to the discussion and sharing of information about houses and structures of the Victorian era. They were I town to look at two Victorian Homes for sale as they have their own home for sale and are looking for their next project as they head into retirement.

Paul Hayden and I discuss the history of a slate mantle in the shop

Paul Hayden from Indiana Landmarks joined us, and after we explored two great homes, we came back to the Burgman building.

I gave them a tour of the building and we all sat down in the Persian parlor to discuss the homes we had toured and Preservation in general. It was a great way to spend the day and we were pleased to show off Historic Logansport to experts in the field.

We hope to host more Preservationists in the future as we show off the incredible architecture that Logansport offers.
