Save the Graffiti House

The Graffiti House is a very special historic treasure. One hundred and fifty years ago, Confederate and Union soldiers inscribed timeless messages on the walls of this structure. After the war, these messages were covered with paint and wallpaper. They were rediscovered in 1992 as the house was being demolished.


1992


2006

Although the house is structurally sound today, volunteers at the house have seen a significant deterioration in the condition of the horse hair plaster walls since their discovery. As a result of exposure to temperature variations, vibration from the nearby rail traffic, and age related structural stresses, the artwork on the walls of the Graffiti House is slowly disappearing.

After one hundred and fifty years the house needs extensive restoration.  Please make your pledge today to provide funds in support of needed restoration work.
