Metal cresting restored on the Seelinger Home at Poplar Heights Living History Farm

Metal Cresting restored on Seelinger Home
Many decades ago when the roof on the Seelinger Home at Poplar Heights Living History Farm was being re-roofed, the metal cresting was removed and stored away.

It was made at the turn of the century by Norman Tin Works of Nevada, MO. It has now been restored and attached to the roof of the house.

Similar cresting will be replaced on the barn as part of restoration of the cupola and the ridgeline, damaged by a passing tornado.

Poplar Heights Living History Farm is located on East of Butler on H Highway to UU Highway North until the pavement ends. Turn right onto county Rd. 5004 going East.

Go past fields about 1 mile and you will see parking sign.
