Stone Fence Renovation Workshop

The Native Stone Scenic Byway runs through Wabaunsee County, connecting Dover, Eskridge, Lake Wabaunsee and Alma. One very popular project put on by the byway committee is the Stone Fence Restoration Workshop!

Rocky Slaymaker, a professionally trained dry stone conservancy mason will again be the lead teacher. The dry stone fence renovation workshop is held in both the Spring and Fall each year.

The workshop will give Kansans the opportunity to learn how their forefathers built these sturdy fences. The historic stone fences, which were authorized by the Kansas legislature in 1867, are highlights of the Kansas Native Stone Scenic Byway, sponsor of the hands-on workshop. Participants will learn the nine essential elements for successful stone fence building and repair. It involves actual stone fence repair.

Tuition is $100.00 for this application and the workshop is limited to 20 people. Please fill out and return an application. There are scholarships available for young people of high school or college age.
