The 80-acre George Spangler Farm property, located in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is one of the most preserved and significant Union field hospitals from the Battle of Gettysburg. During the Battle of Gettysburg, the serene yet productive home and farm were totally transformed into a place of chaos and crisis for thousands of individuals, including soldiers, surgeons, caregivers, volunteers and the Spangler family.  In the fall of 2015 construction started to restore the barn and smokehouse to their original appearances. Kinsley was the construction manager for this rehabilitation project, which helped to return the farm to its 1863 appearance.  Rehabilitation included substantial structural timber framing repairs, masonry preservation, and installation of barn siding and cedar shake roofing.
