Hench House, an example of what is possible.

Jim and Jean Lehman rescued the 1887 Hench House in York, PA from pending demolition and restored it a decade ago. It is an excellent example of what is possible even for a house most people would consider “too far gone.” Every house can’t be saved and some truly are too far gone to be saved, but many houses are destroyed every year that could have been saved. Knowing it is possible is often the first critical step toward accomplishing something good.

The restoration of the Hench House should be an example to others, and that is the reason it is on the cover of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.

Now known as the Lady Linden, Hench House is one of 13 featured houses photographed by noted architectural photographer David Clough and presented between the how-to chapters of the book. I will be at the Lady Linden-Hench House for a book signing on December 14th. See the events listing on this page for details. The book will be released in December and is now available for pre-order on Barnes & Noble and Amazon! https://www.amazon.com/dp/0884484904/ref=nav_timeline_asin?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

Ask your local bookstore to contact their W.W. Norton rep to order copies.
