Penny became a resident of Floral Terrace when she discovered this forgotten walking court in August, 1988.  She and Jed then began their own "this old house" project.

She has held many officer and chair posts with CPW and continues to volunteer in fundraising events, neighborhood clean-ups, restoration projects and social activities.

Currently enjoying her retirement, Penny is  continuing her interests in preservation, local historical research, gardening, kayaking, travel AND sharing their front porch with many dear friends for over 30 years and counting.
