Garrett Kendrick and Jacob Schuyler work in the summer heat to dig up and move rocks and bricks to help in the renovation of the Errea Garden.

The Errea House garden on Green Street in Tehachapi is undergoing major changes and some projects are beyond the capabilities of the not-so-young volunteers that help the Heritage League Museum on a monthly basis.

A cry for help went out and was answered by our local chapter of the Boy Scouts of America. Under the leadership of Scout Leader Zack Powell, two members of his troop volunteered to dig up and stack pavers and move a large mound of rocks into gabion cages to form a wall.

Garrett Kendrick and Jacob Schuyler worked in the heat and did a terrific job.

The Errea House is the oldest house in Tehachapi and, with the changes in the garden, will continue to be an asset to the community. The garden is open to the public while under modifications and the Museum and Errea House are now open on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. Come and visit our no-charge keeper of Tehachapi History at 310 S. Green St.
