HAWLEY, PA — Restoration architect John Bowie is preparing the drawings and specification necessary to bid the final phase of its exterior restoration of the Daniels Farmhouse at Lock 31 D & H Canal Park, which includes the lock-side porch making the building handicapped accessible, and replacing five windows and two doors. Grant funding for this work is almost complete. Donations are always welcome.

The park’s second trail, the Riverside Trail with loop along the Lackawaxen River from the Towpath Trail, will hopefully be developed as a local Boy Scout’s Eagle project with an official opening during this year’s canal festival.

The annual Canal Park Yard Sale is on May 24 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring lightly used stuff (no clothing or furniture too heavy for two ladies to move) to the lock house on May 21 to 23 from 4 to 5 p.m. or come and buy the day of.
