Nearly 120 people stopped by to look at the progress of the Gardner House restoration and learn more about the area surrounding the house. The students at the event also learned plenty from the visitors, some of whom had lived in the house before it became part of the Upper Green River Preserve.

We hope to make this only the first of many community events at the Gardner House. If you're interested in becoming a member of the Community Advisory Board for the house, we'd like to hear from you. You'll have input on what events might be possible for the future and how the Gardner House impacts the local community. For more information, please contact Dr. Michael Ann Williams, head of WKU's Department of Folk Studies & Anthropology, at firstname.lastname@example.org
