Plans are currently being developed for some improvements to the Scholte House. Last Fall, the House was assessed by Dr. Arvid Osterberg of Iowa State University. Osterberg gave recommendations to the Scholte House Board of Directors on how to improve the functionality of the House while maintaining its historical significance. Mike Morgan, Vice President of the Pella Historical Society and a member of the Scholte House Board says by having the assessment performed, the Board will be able to apply for grants to make the recommended improvements. He says they hope to have a plan in place by September.
