In late July 2012, it was deemed necessary to make several repairs to maintain the integrity of the building. Not much maintenance had been done on the school for nearly 20 years, so time and weather had taken some toll. Although the roof itself was in great shape, there was a lot of wood rot in the window casings, facia boards, and soffits. The openings from this deterioration were also exposing the interior of the building to the “elements” of the outdoors (moisture, mud dobbers, etc.).
Additional future repairs/improvements are warranted, but those completed were deemed the most critical to ensure the building would be secure and not deteriorate any further over the winter.
The interior of the school needs some wall plaster repair and re-painting. Plans are to furnish the interior to appear similar to how it would have appeared in the late 1800’s. The electrical wiring needs replacement to provide for new light fixtures and receptacles. More to come…
