"I've always had a keen interest in history and architecture. A friend, Arnold Smith, already a member of the Farmers' Bank, asked me to help photograph and document the Doucet house in the fall of 1999. It was to be destroyed. However, the Farmers' Bank acquired the old house. As a result of my interest, I was asked to prepare the conservation report for the Doucet House restoration, and then supervised the construction restoration of the house and site. I've continued to be involved, from tending to the garden, to helping with a variety of events and functions."
