Eagle Scout focuses on historical preservation
An Eagle Scout in North Platte turned his focus to historical preservation for his Eagle Scout project.
Caleb Miller re-did the walkway at the Fredricksen House at the Lincoln County Historical Museum.
After removing the old bricks, Miller and his team had to get rid of five tons of dirt and replace it with nine tons of sand.
According to Miller it took 1,700 bricks to complete the project. He even created a flowerbed using old bricks from Downtown North Platte.
"The small little flowerbeds that are over here were not originally part of my Eagle Scout project," said Miller. "We got permission from the city to take some bricks from the construction site that they're doing downtown and we were able to make a flowerbed on this side of the house."
Miller said his goal was much like the teachings of the Boy Scouts, leave it better than he found it.
