L.H MASON BUILDING
The Board of Trustees has voted to sell the Mason property. Many long, hard hours and many special meetings have gone into making this decision. The extent of the work needed to make the building structurally sound and usable and ever increasing costs of labor and materials needed in the renovation along with needed day-to-day operating expenses were all considered in our decision. We kept returning to the amount of money that would be needed, at least 1.25 million dollars, and the amount of money that we would need to raise to be considered for grant funding just became more than a very small historical society could wisely take on.
We do want to thank all of the people that supported this project, either with your volunteer time and labor or those who provided financial support through your generous donations or through our Buy-A-Brick fundraising program. Each of our donors will be receiving a letter from the Historical Society in the near future explaining our decision.
