The Cross House
This column, to me, was the poster child symbolizing the decay of the Cross House.
For five years it taunted me. Each time I would gaze at it, I would feel a stab of pain. With every passing year I would grow ever more worried: Would I ever be able to bring the wretched column back to life and beauty?
Well…………..wanna see what it looks like now? Scroll way down…
The base is all new, as is the “pancake” just below the carved capital. The box on top is half new.
And Ross? He is very very very happy tonight.
The restoration of the final eight columns on the south side of the house are part of the 2017 Heritage Trust Grant.
