NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) - A more than 200-year-old home that’s a southern Indiana city’s oldest framed house is a step closer to getting a new cedar shingle roof.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has provided a $7,000 grant for the re-roofing project on the Scribner House, which was built in 1814 in New Albany.

The Piankeshaw Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution owns the house in the Ohio River city and is working to raise money to replace the roof with historically accurate, hand-crafted cedar shingles.

Dorothy Scott, who’s the regent of the Piankeshaw Chapter, tells the News and Tribune (https://bit.ly/1L5Iikz ) the local group feels fortunate to have been chosen for the grant.
