Thanks, Dick! But let me add quickly here that Nick Cattell did most of the
hard work on this --- I just narrated it, rounded up the history, etc.
The DVD is available, with all profits going to the Lucas County Arts
Council which has restored and maintains both the Dual Gables House and the
Freight House in Chariton.
Nick and his wife, Deb, live in "Ilion Acres," the subdivision created from
the Ilion grounds; and Nick actually owns one of the last two Mallory
buildings on the grounds, a barn that he's restored. The other original
building is the farm house, where Brook Farm managers, lived just across the
way from the barn.
Nick works extremely hard for both the Arts Council and, since he's a big
Mallory buff, on all things Mallory-related. We spent a Saturday morning
this spring extricating two slate chimney pieces (photos on the CD) from the
Ilion (Mallory Castle) from a chicken house on a farm not far from Chariton,
hauling them into town where, hopefully, we'll be able to restore and
display them one of these days.
Nick, the Arts Council and Chariton Rotary also are planning a "Mallory Day"
during November at the Freight House --- so there's actually quite a few
things going on.
Any how, anyone interested in a CD can just e-mail Nick and he'll take it
from there. Betcha he'll tell you about the new souvenir plates, too! His
