Spent some time in the shop yesterday, repurposing some old forged iron pieces to create a new lower eyebolt on which the original fireplace crane is to set in the Noah Blake cabin. One of the original eyebolts is missing, so we’ll have this piece installed this spring. Edith loves her Dremmel!

The Renovations to the Eric Sloane Museum and the Noah Blake Cabin

Edith and I visited the Noah Blake cabin and Eric Sloane Museum last week. The museum looks great – we’re so excited to watch the progress. I gave Edith her first tour of the cabin and she pronounced it “amazing”, comparing it to Eric’s drawing in her copy of “Diary of an Early American Boy”. We’re already getting ready for the 50th anniversary of the Eric Sloane Museum gala celebration on Saturday, June 27th. Hope to see you there!

Thinking that I might look a bit too young if I went with the photo above, we decided to go with one that conveys a bit more maturity (dare I say older?):

Compare the photograph below, taken in December of 2019, with Eric Sloane’s original illustration for the Noah Blake cabin in his 1962 Diary of an Early American Boy. How did we do?
