i hate to bust your bubble but the windows have been broken since at least June of 2012 with birds making their homes in the house and the shutters have been down since before that. i suppose he is going to try to claim this on the insurance!

Just glad the damage wasn't worse. My boyfriend and I were just there last month, and I love that place.

Guess maybe the tree falling on the fence was Gods way of saying what an ugly and "modern" style fence you put around such a historical place such as Henderson Hall. Seems to me and many others the fence should have been a period fence that would have matched the historic structure...just sayin' Also, the tree looks as though it was rotten? I know many insurance companies do not cover damage caused by a rotten tree coming down in a windstorm.

He really is a horrible person who has downright ruined the place! Oil derricks and ugly cabins with TIN roofs?! I mean really?!? Mr. Ralston is probably flipping in his grave wondering WHY he ever chose to leave the Hall to the Oil & Gas Museum! Makes me sick...
