Water damages historic Kell House Museum
"Built in 1909 by local pioneer Frank Kell, the Kell House bridges past, present, and future.
The Kell House Museum tells the history of Wichita Falls through the eyes of the Kell family. Tours of this local, state, and national landmark include stories of the Kell family, the city that grew around them, and their contributions to the community and nation."
A true jewel in the history of Wichita Falls. And sadly, severely damaged due to burst pipes from the recent winter weather.
SERVPRO of Wichita Falls is honored to be a part of the restoration of this historic property, and saddened beyond words at the scope of the damage.
Here's a brief article from the museum's Facebook page: "On Tuesday, February 23, 2021, as a result of the big thaw following Snowmaggedon 2021, we were greeted with water gushing in the Kell House Museum. Some water spread out into the pool room and traveled into the library, but the bulk of it filled our basement to at least five feet.
We would like to offer a great big Thank You! to Brian's Plumbing, Trinity Hughes Construction, and SERVPRO of Wichita Falls (Thank you Michael), for your help in getting the situation under control!"
The restoration process will be a long one, and all of us at SERVPRO of Wichita Falls will be doing our part to help in the complete recovery of this historic home.
