Stage Station Restoration Updates

The restoration work completed this year (2017) on the 1862 Stage Station, totaling $42,904, is as follows: 


  1. Finish the porch deck.
  2. Install new roof over the building and the porch deck.
  3. New ceiling installation and completion of wiring and lighting.
  4. New heating stove installation in the east end (in-progress).
  5. Re-chink inside and outside walls and seal around doors and windows.
  6. Refinish original door (to be reinstalled in the south entrance), refinish the floor (not completed), and add a preservative to the outside walls.  (Preservative purchased, but not applied.)




The scope of this project is nearly complete with a total of $76,951 having been spent over a period of four years.

Contributions, including both cash and in-kind from January to November, 2017, total $1,972. Thank you to all of our generous contributors!  Time donated by member volunteers for the same period amounted to well in excess of $4,949.  Thank you, again, to all of our faithful and selfless members who always work so tirelessly.

We are planning a dedication ceremony during our June, 2018 Open House – stay tuned for more information.  If you are interested in joining, helping or simply need more information, please contact any board member. 


We will continue our fundraising efforts and apply for appropriate grants until the project is completed.  Donations of cash, materials, and volunteer labor are needed and greatly appreciated.  If you are interested in helping or need more information, please contact us.
