We have been extremely busy moving forward with our renovation and expansion plans this year and have used much of the pandemic time to focus our efforts on those exciting developments following a generous $150,000 donation that was made to retire the remainder of our mortgage earlier this year.
Our house was built in the 1890's by the Pierstorff family (pictured above) and later purchased by this young ladies grandparents below in the late 1920's or early 1930's. As a Middleton Landmark this house is regarded as one of the most iconic homes in all of Middleton. Understanding and preserving that history and maintaining the charm and character of this 130 year old gem is incredibly important to us and our community. We have worked very hard to partner with community leaders to understand the history and those who came before us in order to preserve this special place. This is a beloved house to so many so it was a blessing recently to receive the feedback and support of those who are entrusted with maintaining historic sites like this as they approved our building plans. There's a lot of work yet ahead, but we are hoping to begin construction in October to help ensure that Restoring Hope Transplant House remains a fixture here in downtown Middleton. We hope the families you see here that called this place home before us would be proud of our collective efforts to save what they have created. These are exciting times!
