On June 20, Zach Nauman brought his Eagle Scout project to completion when he presented two log benches to the city of Weldon Spring.
Nauman, a member of Boy Scout Troop 353, built the benches over a two-month period with the help of several other Scouts and adults. The project took approximately 70 hours to complete.
Today, the benches are located near the historic smoke house log cabin, which was a part of the Triesch Family German Homestead purchased from the Francis Howell School District in 2009.
“The wooden benches have been a great addition to our park,” said Weldon Spring Mayor Don Licklider. “They will be enjoyed by many people for years to come.”
