The Piankeshaw Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution is excited to announce that the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County has given us a grant. The funds will be used to begin a major restoration of the Scribner House in New Albany. The first phase will be to restore the exterior of the west elevation of the house.
The Scribner House was built 200 years ago by Joel Scribner, a founding father of New Albany. The Piankeshaw Chapter DAR purchased the family home from Harriet Scribner in 1917. The members have cared for this house for nearly a hundred years.
The Horseshoe Foundation restored the lawn beside Scribner House and created Scribner Gardens. People from our community stop to relax or eat their lunch; parents stop to let their children enjoy the fountain. This donation has brought much awareness of and interest in the Scribner House.
Thank you, Horseshoe Foundation, for your generosity.
