Wyman House - Before and After Photos

This is a progression of "Before and After" photographs that shows how the Wyman Family Association has been caring for the Francis Wyman House over the years.  When the Family Association aquired the property over 100 years ago (it is not owned by the town, a museum, or a historical society) the house was in very sad shape.  Then after some renovations, it suffered a fire in 1996, but has been undergoing a series of restorations.  Please see my blog post yesterday at this link: http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/2011/06/grand-re-opening-of-1666-francis-wyman.html 
or click on the key word "WYMAN" in the right hand column of the blog to read other stories about the Wyman family and the Francis Wyman House.
