MONROE, Conn. -- Christopher Cavanaugh, a member of Monroe’s Boy Scout Troop 163, built three picnic tables and five planter boxes for the grounds of the Monroe Historical Society’s Eliot Beardsley House as an Eagle Scout project.
“I visited the site as a Cub Scout ten years ago,” said Cavanaugh, “and I remember it being very interesting. I also appreciate those who turned out to help with construction and delivery, members of Troop 163, the football and lacrosse teams and other friends.”
More than 100 hours were devoted to the project.
The Eliot Beardsley house and barn stand as living museums, filled with an extensive collection of furnishings and farm implements that reflect life in Monroe through the years and the town's cultural legacy and traditions.
The Monroe Historical Society is a volunteer-driven nonprofit that helps preserve Monroe's heritage and the spirit of its people.
