Hench House in the Snow

The fabulous Hench House in the snow. Laura Heydt photo. The Queen Anne style house, built in York, PA, in 1887, is featured on the cover of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” and is a featured house in the book. The spread includes gorgeous photos of the restored house by noted architectural photographer David Clough and “before” and “during” photos of its dramatic restoration.

The house was under a demolition order when a retired couple who lived nearby stepped in to buy and restore it. A failed roof had allowed water to pour into the house for more than a decade, and it had received no maintenance for far longer than that. The restoration of this house, now known as the Lady Linden Bed and Breakfast, is a perfect illustration of what is possible when individuals are determined to preserve their community’s history.

“Restoring Your Historic House” includes 13 featured houses between the how-to chapters, ranging in date from the 1760s to the 1950s and geographically spread from Maine to New Mexico.
