Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site Superintendent Tyrone Brandyburg is leaving Connemara on Feb. 24 to become superintendent of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia. He has served the Sandburg Home for more than four years and most notably has led the park through major preservation work on the historic home and barn buildings. He also served during the park's 45th anniversary and the National Park Service 100th Anniversary during 2016.

“I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with the talented group of employees, volunteers and partners at the Sandburg Home”, Brandyburg said. “I truly enjoyed the work we accomplished and the plans we developed to preserve the history of Carl Sandburg. I am very proud of the conservation work on the main house which included the repair of the conservatory and the design of a new ventilation system. I will remember well working with the park team to find solutions to issues within the Park.”

“I am also excited about the opportunity to work with the staff at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. I look forward to working with partners and the local communities in an effort to continue telling the stories of more than 1,000 years of human history in the region, which includes its military significance, John Brown and Storer College.”

A farewell event will be held the evening of Friday, Feb. 24. If you would like to attend please call the park for more information and to RSVP at 828-693-4178.
