Unique to Their Time

The tool shed at the Gilfillan Farm is a wood structure that houses a collection of tools that were used throughout the history of the farm. Several tools are unique to the time period, including an interesting piece known as a "Gilfillan Stencil."

The master plan recommended that several repairs be made to the tool shed building. To date, the Historical Society of Upper St. Clair has replaced the roof and gutters. The flooring of the structure needs to be reinforced in the near future.
