Hello visitors,

I have some exciting news!. As of October I have purchased my own domain name for this site, and have transferred everything over to it. The decision to do so was primarily decided by frustrations with not being able to manage the site how I needed to, and the solution was to get the new domain and install the open-source version of wordpress’s software, which I am very happy with. My hope is that the new site will make it much easier for visitors to access my research into the workhouse in a variety of ways, and hopefully allow me to update it more frequently.

I will be leaving this site up for awhile to direct visitors over to the new one but have removed all articles, photos, etc. I would appreciate you updating your bookmarks and rss feeds!

Welcome to the new!

    Dear Katy and Melissa (Green Mommy).
    In response to Melissa’s question “do you know if the building can be purchased?”, the answer is Yes. I work for Lucian Development which owns the property and would like to sell, especially to a good cause.

    If anyone has a serious interest, please contact me through Katy’s wonderful blog.
