When restoration began on the Lakeport Plantation house, the rose window that once adorned the front porch pediment was painted over and damaged to the point that it was hardly noticeable. Climbing into the attic, facilities manager Ronnie Walker found the original glass from the window, along with the scalloped wood sash. He began the process of bringing it back to its former beauty by deconstructing what remained, then using Abatron filler and Dutchmen to restore the original frame. A new rose center and muntins were designed and constructed to complete the restoration. This restoration was undertaken using the same tools and techniques that would have been used to created the window 150 years ago.
