Resident Curators. This week, the majority of the Home & Garden section is devoted to the growing resident curator programs in the North East. Nothing Down, $0 a Month, Hammer Required features three historic buildings and their resident curators. By living in old and cherished state-owned houses and taking on all the restoration responsibilities, these families often live in lieu of paying rent or taxes.
At Home in a Tavern. Richard and Hedy Stewart (and their daughter Hattie) restoring the 1820s Buck Tavern in Bear, Delaware.
From an 1890s Renovation to an 1860s One. Darrold Endres, Janet Fritz, and their three daughters restoring the Litchfield House in Massachusetts.
Early 1800s Farm Life in Maryland, but Grander. T.J. and Gale Johnson restoring an 1815 farmhouse in Annapolis, Maryland.
