2015 Eagle Scout Project an Example of
Community Support and Volunteerism

Jacob Asbrock, a member of Troop 1 in Springfield, chose the Marbold Farmstead for his Eagle Scout project. Jacob--along with his crew of fellow Scouts, helpers and Scout Master Pete Rafferty--removed brush and trees to expose the huge barn foundation that sits east of the house. With the help of a skid steer provided by Lawrence Wohler, the group worked for two days to accomplish this task. HMFA is very grateful for volunteers who share in the mission of restoring the Marbold Farmstead.
