Although the City funded its move and final restoration, over the years the HPC has applied for and been awarded several grants, including county, state and federal, to help with the restoration of the house. In addition, many private donations have been received, all of which have enabled the preservation of the museum house as well as the acquisition of period appropriate furnishings.
Today the restoration of both the interior and exterior has been completed. Out buildings,
including a drying shed, well and privy have been added; and work has begun on furnishing the house with period appropriate furniture and accessories.
