Last year at this time we were raising funds to replace the front porch on the Dillingham-Lewis House Museum. The funds were raised and that work will be completed this summer! A BIG THANK YOU to everyone that donated to the porch fund.
This year we need to repair the gutters, damaged eaves & paint the Dillingham-Lewis House Museum. These are very costly repairs and could easily double depending on the damage that can’t be seen until the work is started.
Your support is crucial in our efforts to raise the funds needed for this large repair. You can help by sharing this post and by contributing towards the repairs.

Dillingham-Lewis Museum Front Porch Fund
The Dillingham-Lewis House Museum is a seven-room home that was built in 1906 by Morgan Vachel Dillingham. From 1928 - 1947, Miss Narra Lewis resided in the home. In 1976, the home was purchased by Blue Springs Historical Society, Inc.
We are trying to raise enough funds this year to replace the concrete front porch and steps on the Dillingham-Lewis House Museum and add a handicap ramp on the south side of the porch.
Funds have been raised and the porch work will start May-June 2018!
Thank you to everyone that donated to the porch fund!
