When Bay House was taken down a few years ago, visitors to our Wright Woods were afforded an impressive view of Fairhaven Bay from the terrace. This was the good news. The bad news was that the fieldstone retaining wall that supported the terrace was determined to be failing. How do you stabilize a ten foot high masonry wall? With a system of helical screws that go through the wall and anchor it deep into the subsoil, a method commonly employed in the construction industry. The girders that now brace the front face of the wall are clearly visible and we hope will weather over time, but we are glad to know that the view and the site of Helen Robinson Wright’s summer house will be able to be enjoyed for the foreseeable future.
