i The Bingham-Waggoner Estate

What has the Bingham-Waggoner Estate meant to you?
"The estate has always been a magical place, so working towards the restoration has been very important. 
Of course, money is at the root of seeing this goal become a reality.  The fundraisers held by the estate, provides an opportunity to work with others who are interested in the restoration, also.  Being able to see the progress has been exciting as this is an on-going process ."
