~Bringing Back The Light Event~

 July 2015 - Preservation Event & Fundraiser was a HUGE success!!

Our volunteers were amazing and worked their hearts out. Thank you to each and every one of you!! ALL of the planned preservation work was completed. We replaced every broken window and finished many other small projects. We also had a great turn out for the donation tours. And to those of you who came, thank you so very much for your support! We can't tell you how much we appreciate it. This project wouldn't be a success without all of you!! Thank you again!

   May 2013 "Dig Out"

Digging with heavy equipment started in October 2012 and was finished in May 2013 at the "Dig Out" by hand event.
This dig out was prep work for a future french drain, concrete walkway around three sides of the structure and a retaining wall made from remaining timber. We have an erosion problem around three sides of the mansion and we hope this will fix the problems.

This dig out will also allow us to gain access to timbers rotten in the walls. We can now get to them and replace with new timbers. We are also now able to add support beams under the staircases.

February 2010-Clean Up

In February of 2010, we held a huge two day clean-up of the mansion and its surrounding property. It was a huge success and it was all completed by volunteers, donations, and a few businesses from the Bighorn Basin. The response from the public has been enormous and very positive.

Paul and I would like to personally thank each

one of you for your volunteer efforts!

Each volunteer played a huge role in this historical weekend.


It was a great start to the Smith Mansion Preservation Project!
