Giving Thanks -Thanks for old schoolhouse support

On Nov. 7, it will be three years since a group of Creswell citizens who were concerned about the fate of Creswell’s Old to restore the exterior of the building in 2020. The exterior restoration involves several proj- ects. The back room, which will eventually house an Americans wit h Disabilities Act-compliant bath- room, will get a new roof. A new deck will be built at the back entrance to serve as a landing for the eventual ADA ramp.
The south side, which has been covered with fabric since March 2018, will get new siding milled to match the north side, which is original to the 1875 construction. Original exterior trim will be restored. All windows in the main room and kitchen will be restored. It is the goal of CHF to restore the building in accordance with the guidelines for buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.
Creswell Heritage Foundation THANKS everyone who has supported us with their time, money, materials and words of encour- agement as we work to restore the oldest public building in Creswell to its role as a community asset that links us to our past and is a source of community pride.
Verlean McCoy,
Creswell Heritage Foundation president
