Koerner house’s stone foundation was laid in 1849 above the frost line, resulting in minor movement and interior wall cracking in the freeze and thaw cycle. A channel was excavated along the front wall and the left side wall. Concrete pads were poured beneath the stones to strengthen the foundation.
