Hidden Plainfield: Hardly hidden on West 8th


Getting ready for its closeup, the Marsh Mansion
gets a new roof, August 2008.
 
Today's Hidden Plainfield is a tip 'o the hat to John Stewart and Craig Bowman, whose detailed restoration of the 1893 Marsh mansion on West 8th Street is the subject of a profile in the Ledger this past Thursday (see here).

The house has been years in restoration (my picture was snapped in 2008), which was greatly needed.


John and Craig have also been generous in opening their home to the community -- it was featured on a Van Wyck Brooks District Christmas Tour, among other opportunities. If you missed a chance to see what they have done, keep your eyes peeled for future opportunities.

 
Meanwhile, dig in and enjoy the story of this magnificent home's rescue.

Many thanks again to John and Craig who always work tirelessly to bring good press to Plainfield.

Come on, people, let's do the same.
