WOODBURY – Jason Zulpa could not do his Eagle Scout project with a little help from his friends. The Troop 54 Boy Scout and Nonnewaug junior had to clear a lot of brush, dig some fence posts, and do some masonry to make the project a reality.
Zulpa and a team of five – which included two Eagle Scouts – spent a few weekends this spring beautifying the Glebe House Museum & Gertrude Jekyll Garden property. Zulpa’s team built a walkway from Hollow Park and erected a new section of split rail fencing.
LoriAnn Witte, Director of the Glebe House Museum & Gertrude Jekyll Garden, said Zulpa’s project makes the rear entry to the property look nice and be safe for its visitors.
“The old entry was overgrown and a tripping hazard,” Witte said. “We will now be able to promote the rear access way from the park, especially for large events like All Hollow’s Eve when guests use the parking the most.”

Earlier this Spring, for his Eagle Scout project, Boy Scout Troop 480 member Benjamin Johnson decided to build a new picnic area for visitors at the Glebe House.
