RECENT ACTIVITIES AT THE ALLEN HERITAGE VILLAGE
TEXAS CONVENTION AND VISITORS BUREAU VISITS THE VILLAGE
As part of their recent conference, this group made an Allen Historical Tour visiting the Old Stone Dam with Tim Dentler, the Allen Heritage Village and the Allen Depot Museum with Heritage Guild members. At the village they were given an introduction Power Point program and viewed the Christian Church. Then they broke into groups to tour the Lynge and Wetsel houses. From there they moved on to the depot to view the exhibits displayed there. Some took advantage of the photo op with the luggage.
YOUNG MEN'S SERVICE LEAGUE WORK AT THE VILLAGE
The group is an international service group of mothers and sons working together. The organization is locally based in Plano and have done a variety of service projects in the Dallas area. There were groups of Mom’s and son’s coming and going all day on a 2 hr. schedule. They did a tremendous job on several projects given them by the Heritage Guild. These projects are located near the Wetsel house. They constructed a raised garden bed to be used for pole beans and cotton plants; and using reclaimed wood they made an outhouse and chicken coop.
FURTHER WORK ON THE FARMHOUSE
