The Thompson House was repainted again in 2000.


To highlight the improved exterior of the Thompson House, the trustees approved a 1989 landscaping project that added flowering trees and a variety of plantings.



As our first interior renovation project, the Trustees determined to remake the so-called "maid's ironing room", which was largely used for storage, into a children's room which would feature the abundant toys and games found in the attic. Extensive plaster repair, wallpapering and a refinished floor were all necessary.

DINING ROOM (1990 - 1991)

A more extensive and expensive project was begun when the dining room demanded attention. Termite damage from years before had caused both stuctural and cosmetic problems. We solved this problem by hiring Mark Hissom to duplicate the existing oak floorboards where needed and to refinish the entire floor. Trustees were responsible for removing and replacing wallpaper, painting the ceiling, and moving a mirror and chandelier from the living room. Worst of all, we painstakingly stripped all doors and wood work of their white paint.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society reserves the right to charge such an individual a fee for the use of the Society’s material.
