Chimney Stabilization Effort – Urgent!
What it is: The chimney along the servants’ wing of the house is in urgent need of stabilization. Leaning and cracked, it must be stabilized to prevent further damage to the chimney, or risk collapse into the house.
With your help, we can bring awareness to our urgent need!
