1862 Stage Station Restoration Update :12/31/15
Progress on the stabilization, rehabilitation, and restoration of the Virginia Dale Stage Station has slowed a bit for 2015, but is still moving forward. All of the new reproduction windows were installed in April – the additional light coming into the building is amazing! The chimney liner was also installed as well as new electrical wiring and lighting. Thank you to our volunteers Paul Wright, Roger Uthmann, and Paul Matosky for all of your hard work!
