ALERT: Charles A. Lindbergh Historic Site Celebrates Nine Months of Restoration Work

On Sunday, June 5, the Charles A. Lindbergh Historic Site and Little Falls Area Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of nine months of restoration work at the historic Lindbergh home. Restoration work included repainting the house exterior, repairing interior plaster walls, lead paint removal and upgrading the house’s electrical systems. In addition, the site's 1930s Works Progress Administration building roof was rebuilt.

Media are invited to attend the 1 p.m. ceremony and view the restoration work.

This event is offered in conjunction with the historic site's annual Dollar Day, which shows appreciation to the community by offering $1 admission all afternoon from noon to 5 p.m. Tours of Lindbergh's boyhood home will be available every half hour with the last tour at 4 p.m.
