The Cross House
The Cross House has an amazing 42 stained-glass windows. They are the glory of the house.
And they were all falling apart.
The Kansas Heritage Grant awarded to the house in 2015 allowed the restoration of 3/4 of the windows, and this work is now completed. A second Heritage Grant, awarded this year, will complete the remaining windows.
However, before each stained-glass panel can be re-set into its wood sash, the sash also has to be restored. So, there is always a time lag between the triumphant return of the stained-glass windows and their return to their respective rooms.
All the stained-glass is being restored by Scott and Eric at Hoefer Stained Glass, and it has been a pleasure working with them. Thanks Scott and Eric!
And thanks Kansas Heritage Trust!!!!!!!!
