Johns Island Museum

Our project began in early April.   After meeting with Betty Stringfellow, the founder and owner of the museum, we received her permission and enthusiastic support to begin a cleanup effort to remove the worst overgrowth around the building.   An enthusiastic group of eight Conservancy supporters and history buffs showed up on the morning of April 18 to help out.  
  The pictures show the building had a lot of stuff growing around, over and even into the schoolhouse.   The worst of this was removed and the roof was inspected and cleared off.   While the roof is intact and no leaks, the cedar shingles show significant wear and will have to be replaced within a year or so. The “after” pictures show the fruits of our labor, including revealing a grapefruit and loquat tree beside the building!
