On June 7, 2010, the Restoration Department replaced the courthouse-side basement window for the John Marshall House. This window was replaced about 20 years prior by the department, using a prime grade heart pine. We now know why the window only lasted that long, as it was almost totally consumed by termites. Karl Newago is putting the finishing touches on the mortar pointing, while Jon Miano is caulking the inside edges. Since this window was made from pressure treated pine, and since the Marshall House now has rain gutters, we are expecting it to last much longer.
