A successful and sold-out “Wood Window Workshop” took place this weekend with engaged attendees from Richland County and beyond gathering to learn and experiment while literally chipping away at the restoration of the Dayspring Boiler House.

In addition to the Richland County Infirmary, the grounds retain several original support buildings including the barn, slaughter house, root cellar, and boiler house. The Infirmary itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Taught by members of the Richland Preservation Action Group (which is fostered by the Richland County Historical Society) the workshop took place in two parts, first on-site at Dayspring Assisted Living for the sash removal with hands-on repair following at Oak Hill Cottage.

They would like to thank their many partners and sponsors including the Richland County Foundation, Richland County Historical Society, Oak Hill Cottage, Dayspring Assisted Living & Care Facility and the RichHistory Alliance. 

RPA can be followed on Facebook or Eventbrite for future workshops and has a web presence at richlandpreservation.org
