DeYoung Powerhouse Workbee

Tuesday, August 20th | 10:00am

Join us at the DeYoung Natural Area for a farmstead restoration event. We will be painting the exterior of a building known as the Powerhouse. This building sits atop a diverted stream and waterwheel, which once generated electricity for the DeYoung family. The Powerhouse has seen many improvements in recent years, including a new foundation, windows and various carpentry repairs. Help us accomplish the final step in bringing this unique feature back to life.

Parking will be available on the west side of Cherry Bend road. Please pull in through the gate and park in front of the barn.
