The Restoration of the house began in 2004 and continued over about a three year period. With the help of the Mass Media Department of Southeast Missouri State University, a video chronicle of the restoration effort was made.  Many thanks to Dr. Jim Dufek  and his group of students that worked on this project. Also, thanks to Dr. Frank Nickel of the Center for Regional History at SEMO and also Historian Edison Shrum for their help in developing the history of the house.
