Cashier House Renovations

The house of the Civil War veteran (and curiosity) Albert Cashier is being renovated.  Cashier was the Union veteran who served throughout the war and received a pension, and was revealed only in old age to be a woman.

I find this story interesting, not only because of the Cashier history, but because the renovations are being done in a small town with some very open-minded residents.  Gender confusion is a topic that makes a lot of people uncomfortable (to say nothing of how the gender-confused must feel) and it’s nice to see volunteers preserving a local history that might be considered contentious with such dedication and devotion.
