Colonial "Buck" Fence:
New "Buck Style" Fence Constructed by Jason Kleckner:
In 2014 Jason Kleckner Jr. approached The Friends of the 1803 House, to propose a community service project to satisfy requirements for the Eagle Scout rank. The west property line (along the railroad tracks) is now protected with an historic “Buck Style” fence. Jason and team constructed the buck fence based on archival evidence of livestock fences delineated in a drawing dated 1847 of the 1803 House property
. Thank you Jason!

Sawyer constructed a brick walk according to the plans and details prepared by the 1803 House Architectural Committee. He appealed for donations of material, equipment, personnel and volunteers. With expertise of his coaches and volunteers, Sawyer supervised the installation of a permanent curvilinear brick path.
Thank You Sawyer!
