Preserve Your History,
Help Restore the Cobblestone

At 180 years old the 1843 Cobblestone House is showing a few cracks. It is time to give it a facelift by tuckpointing the damaged and missing lime mortar.

What is Tuckpointing?
Tuckpointing, sometimes called repointing or brick pointing, is a process of finishing or repairing mortar joints between bricks or stones with a narrow ridge of lime putty or fine lime mortar. It provides a facelift to the exterior of a building, but its purpose is more than aesthetic; it also helps maintain or strengthen the integrity of a structure by helping to seal out moisture. An experienced restoration mason is required to perform tuckpointing to help prevent further moisture problems and damage to the walls and foundation.

After consultation with the Wisconsin Historical Society, we obtained quotations to make the necessary repairs. These repairs will ensure the integrity of the structure for decades to come.

The Need for Fundraising
The amount necessary can not be funded through our normal operating budget. Therefore we are launching a campaign to raise $22,500 to go toward this project. The Carrie Jacobs Bond Questers #221 gave us a donation of $2,500 and the Stateline Community Foundation gave $600 to help launch the campaign.

You can help us toward our goal by sending a check to; CCHS Tuckpoint, P O Box 606, Clinton, WI 53525, or
online by credit card or PayPal.
