The Harris Cabin gifted to Hillforest Historical Foundation in 2008 by Martin and Marybeth Rahe, is sighted for restoration to be used as a community educational center once funds are secured.  The latest phase of restoration which included site development was funded by a $25,000 Lawrenceburg Community grant through the Dearborn Community Foundation.  Donations to the cabin fund may be sent to: Harris Cabin Fund, C/o Hillforest, P.O. Box 127, Aurora, IN 47001.  For information call 812-926-0087 or visit  www.hillforest.org.  Hillforest is located at 213 Fifth Street, Aurora and the Harris Cabin is located behind Mary Stratton Park, Fifth Street.
