The Ralph and Sonny Wilson House, Temple, Texas
Her best known work is the restoration and preservation of the Ralph and Sonny Wilson House in Temple, Texas. She received the Merit Award from the National Trust for this project.


Submarine Growler
In 2009, Grace completed a restoration project aboard the USS Growler, a cold war era submarine owned and maintained by the Intrepid Museum of New York City.

The former USS Growler first opened at the Intrepid Museum in 1989 and is the only American guided missile submarine open to the public. Growler offers museum visitors a firsthand look at life aboard a submarine and a close-up inspection of the once “top-secret” missile command center.
