beautiful fences make happy everybody

I love Wayne because it has some superbly wonderful and unique 19th century homes.

One is owned by the family of someone I know named Greg Pritchard.  Greg is part of the Radnor Historical Society and incredibly knowledgeable.  He was of great help to me a couple of years ago when I was researching the Wayne Natatorium to submit to the state for it to get a historical marker.

The Pritchards recently did something super cool: they researched and re-created the original fence to their home from the 19th century with the help of a guy named Stephen Zook of Rocky Ridge Cedar Work in Christiana, Pa. I assume Mr. Zook is either Amish or Mennonite.

I just think the fence is beautiful and unusual and thought I would share in the hopes of inspiring fence creativity! Below is Greg’s family home when it was built.  This wasn’t a requirement, they just did it.  That is preservation in action, people. How very cool!
