Thanks to generous Second Century Capital Campaign donors, all the old shingles and woodwork have been replaced, the front walkway has been regraded and replaced with a nice, smooth, gradual slope, and the “storage area” under the Goodman gallery has been enclosed. A few final touches, such as lighting around the building, are left to complete, but things are looking so good!
This vital restoration work had to begin, even though we are still fundraising to reach our $364,000 campaign goal. With nearly 100-year-old shingles literally falling off the building and deteriorated woodwork falling apart, this major preservation project simply could not be delayed any longer!
Your donation now will help us complete this historic project!
