On December 25, 2017 we were able to place some small battery powered candles in the windows. We did so to honor Mother Knight.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  We reflect on the amazing and wonderful year at the Knight home.  Our hearts are grateful for the many visitors we had and the positive feedback we’ve received from so many.

We were again blessed to have the fulltime senior missionaries to anchor the tours again this year.  Elder and Sister Whetstone did an awesome job of not only providing the tours but making many repairs and improvements to the home and property.  They also made their way into the hearts of the locals as well.  We hope that we will have other fulltime missionaries to do the same this coming summer.

It was also a year of changes with the official “retirement” of Raphael & Shari Mecham, Steve and Pat Glenn and Paul and Ann Painter.  They have worked tirelessly for the many years to bring the home to the museum grade quality that it is.  The folks continuing are not new to the Knight home and will do their best to carry on the rich tradition.  Richard and Cindy have been involved since 2012.  The other team members who carry on are Aaron, Lloyd and Carl.   Nothing changes as far as the home ownership as it remains fully intact as property of Colesville Restoration, a not-for-profit organization. 

On a sad note, Brother Steve Glenn passed away this fall on November 25th.  He will be greatly missed.

We are taking applications for docents for this coming season which runs from May 1st through October 31st.  Please let your friends know of this opportunity.  They can send a message of interest and questions through the Colesville-Restoration.com website through the “Volunteer” tab.

We so much appreciate the donations of money, time and services.  It truly makes the home possible.  Thank you each and every one.
