HA Local History & 19th Century Structures

The Historical Administration curriculum includes a course in local history research methods and meaning, taught by Dr. Terry Barnhart. No team had more fun with the pink bricks (actually strawberry waffle wafers) than did Dr. Barnhart, Diane Hall and Emily Spuhler. They had the challenge to create a 19th century structure, and attempted a mansard roof-line. But graham crackers did not play nice with pink brick.

Not to be dissuaded especially not after learning of the challenges that builders encountered historically, they forged ahead. Ultimately they landscaped the grounds with topiary and even attempted to introduce wildlife (frogs) into the manicured formal gardens.
