We are trying to mitigate the amount of water that is getting into the basement of the Mooreland House. We cleaned up a lot of the lath and plaster that was covering the floor and saw how much water was getting in. A lot of the water was coming through the brick and stones. The so called gutters are nothing but a funnel to get all the water into the cornice moldings and force it into the brick. We took the gutters out of the system and now the water will no longer be funneled into the basement. It’s only a small area and we will see how well it works before we go on to do more of the same.
