Amish Volunteers Assist with Cabin Preservation
Twelve members of the Indiana Amish Anabaptist Service Program from Nappanee, Indiana, have volunteered to help with preservation and restoration of historic cabins at Camp Misty Mount in Catoctin Mountain Park. Eight young men and an experienced work leader will spend one month restoring rustic cabins constructed originally as part of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal program in 1937. The Amish group, working under the direction of Catoctin historic preservation carpenters Mark Hauver and Roger Pickett, will strip designated cabins to original components then restore, replace or re-create structural elements using historically accurate techniques and materials.
