Gilbert Byron House Project

The “Gilbert Byron House Project” is a twice-a-year outside-the-classroom learning experience and community-service effort. It is a partnership between the Rotary Club of Easton and Mr. Tommy Blades’ carpentry classes. The students will spend two days maintaining and repairing the exterior and interior of Mr. Byron’s home at Pickering Creek. Additionally, the students will be introduced to Mr. Byron’s work and will learn about his life. Mr. Byron’s writings captured an era and the way of life that makes our area so special but has largely disappeared. This project will give students an opportunity to learn their local heritage, while using the skills taught in the TCPS Carpentry Pathway to give back to our community and its history.
