Friends of Laura

     Nothing good arises by itself.  Without the help of friends, community businesses and organizations across the United States, our research and preservation efforts would be so much less than they are.  To each and every one of these people we are both thankful for your support, appreciative of your friendship and so many times in awe of your talents.

Stephen Malkoff's Print of the Lichgate Oak TreeStephen Malkoff

This print of the oak was penciled by Stephen Malkoff as a part of his series on historic trees.  You can purchase a print yourself by visiting his gallery.  This print remains one of the best pieces of art of the Lichgate Oak made to date and has been given as gift to many people.  A copy of the print hangs inside the Lichgate Cottage.
