Veblen Center and Ecological Campus: FOHW’s proposal is to create a Veblen Center and ecological campus. The garage is essential for storing the tools we use to maintain Herrontown Woods and Autumn Hill reservation. Exterior repairs will make the Veblen House a more attractive landmark, followed by inside repair with the goal of holding meetings and small cultural events such as talks related to the many themes from the lives of those who lived in or visited the house since it was built in 1930. The Veblen cottage, barn and corncrib are important landmarks evoking the spartan lifestyle of self-sufficient 19th century farmers.
