The Work Begins

The first step in the parlor restoration was the removal of the radiator installed in the 1920s.

The Edwards family parlor before the restoration project began.


The family parlor restoration project in Edwards Place began in the fall of 2008. Jim Edwards approached the SAA about a project in the home that would be completed in memory of his wife, Julia. Julia was a dedicated SAA volunteer and had been very active in training and recruiting volunteers for the home.
