On the back of the museum is a small addition of four rooms that has been used as an apartment as far back as the 1870s, possibly originally intended as housing for the church's minister, but that's a guess.
We are remodeling this as home to our library and archives. Volunteers Jim Davies and Mary Robinson-Slabey have stripped it to its frame, and it is ready to be rebuilt.
The estimate comes to about $60,000. So far we have individual and organizational donations of over $23,000 which is a great start. We have an additional $10,000 available IF we can get MATCHING DONATIONS. Since the last newsletter in August we have $2000 in new donations which will count double.
Having the library and archives in this building will cut the costs of operating two buildings in half, and it will make it more efficient to work. It will be a more unified experience for our visitors and researchers.
