Two of the Maudified houses in Yarmouth have been vandalized, says a spokesperson for the Maud Lewis house project.

The houses damaged were the Kersen house,  painted by Jennie Lamont, at Water and Commercial streets, and the one at the ferry terminal, painted by Grade 5 and 6 immersion students at Plymouth School.

“Both houses had their doors kicked in and broken into several pieces,” said Wendy Majestic, the Maudified house project coordinator.

Two of the project’s core volunteers – Dan Earle and Ivan Blades – have taken the damaged pieces away to repair them, Majestic said.

“What we plan to do, to help reduce the possibility of more vandalism, is fasten the doors shut and remove the handles,” she said.

The small houses – and others like them in various locations – are part of a project celebrating Maud Lewis, the renowned folk artist from Yarmouth County.

    I am so ashamed of the person / persons that damaged these little landmarks. How dare you is all I can say.

    What a shame to see this happen . My husband and I were just to Yarmouth for a drive on Sunday. We saw both these houses and thought they were a lovely idea.
