Restoring a historic home is a massive, overwhelming undertaking. However, these structures depend on innovative thinkers to protect and celebrate the history they hold within their walls. Historic homes connect us to our past, and help us understand our traditions, keeping history alive and ensuring their stories remain a part of our lives for generations to come.

Many people across the United States admire the work ethic of Midwesterners. Growing up as a member of a large farm family in rural Iowa required hands-on hard work. Everyone needed to pitch in to keep food on the table, clothes on backs and a safe roof overhead. People took pride in their homes and properties. Vegetable and flower gardens were weed-free and pristine. Farmhouses and surrounding barns were well maintained and sturdy. If there was a job to be done — it was completed in a timely fashion.

In recent years this delicate beauty has been in danger of becoming extinct. Human-caused climate change and habitat loss are now threatening the North American monarch with extinction.
