A Garden Fence

This little fence was donated to our museum. It was in front of a residence in the late 1870's in this little mining town here in Colorado. The house, like so many, was lost in a fire.
It made a perfect fence to surround our Victorian Garden on the grounds of the museum.

  1. Hello Janey,

    There is something incredibly homely about a white painted picket fence. This one looks very sweet indeed. It is sad that it has lost the house to which it belonged but lovely that it has found a new home and purpose at your museum. Perfect!

  2. Part of the American Dream. . . a home with a picket fence. Okay if it's part of the museum. . .it's still part of a dream.

  11. In 2004 we were married and we bought a house near Wasilla and moved out of the city. In late 2010 Marna decided she preferred to live independently and we separated - ending our 10 year partnership.bamboo fencing
