We were thrilled to see the article in today’s Intelligencer describing the plans of the new executive director of Fonthill and Mercer Museum, Kyle McKoy. We plan to reconvene our group and offer to help with the efforts to revive the Little House site.
Some of you might remember the article from two years ago which mentioned our group: http://www.theintell.com/69393a68-de5c-584e-b2d0-d392b8c4e946.html

One immediate way to help is to contribute to the Fonthill Woodlands Project. From their page:
“The graffiti and spray paint that appears on the exterior and interior of the little house in the woods will be removed and the façade will be cleaned to expose the architectural features of the structure. One of the most unique features on the exterior of the house is a beautiful Mercer tile that depicts a bird and the Latin phrase “Silva Vocat” (the forest calls), and it is this wonderful art that serves as the showpiece for the mission appeal graphics.”
