The Manship House will soon have a new cedar shingle roof.  Preliminary work on the roof included the complete reconstruction of all three chimney stacks.  The reconstructed chimneys have all been painted, and new copper flashing has been installed around each chimney base.  The old shingles are being removed in sections, as the new cedar shingles are installed.  The roof will look much like it would have when the house was constructed in 1857.
