We are pleased to announce that we have four new board members that were elected at the Annual Meeting of Historic Hope Foundation on April 24th. Welcome to Shoshana Serxner-Merchant, Harriet Stout, Dawson Tyler, and Norma Wesson.
Dawson Tyler graduated from Washington and Lee University with a degree in history. He lives in Edenton and owns his own business, Down East Preservation, which specializes in the preservation, construction, and design of historical structures.
Harriet Stout was Chief Curator of the Chesapeake Beach Railroad Museum for 27 years. She and her husband live in and are restoring the Thomas Bond house, which is believed to be built by Jerimiah Bunch, who is thought to have built the Hope mansion.
