Nearly all of the city of Hillsboro staff were hard at work May 23 laying the new sod lawn on the William F. Schaeffler House lawn. Work began early in the morning and was completed by lunch time. With the addition of the grass, the exterior work at the historic home is all but complete. Last year the roof was replaced and chimneys repaired with state funding assistance. Earlier this year, city workers removed some old trees on the front yard and planted two new ones, replaced the sidewalks and installed two classic yard lamps.
