2011 Restoration Photos from NYS OPHRP

Kevin Kieff, Director for the Thousand Islands Region office of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, has provided a new collection of photos illustrating the work down this work season restoring Rock Island.  Several photos illustrate the dramatic transformation of the upper story of the Keeper's Dwelling.  Careful attention had to be paid to removing all traces of lead from the interior before any work could be begin, so it has been a long process. 

Thanks to Mr. Kieff for great pictures of the work at Rock Island once again this year!
