> Yes. The exterior is done, save the landscaping. But we are just beginning

> the museum area where visitors can learn about a variety of historical
> elements including photography, railroading, commerce, post office,
> segregation and more. Interior restoration will be expensive, including
> insulation, wiring, HVAC. We welcome all support to make this a wonderful
> and educational place to visit.
> The Rural Retreat name on the east and west ends will be put back in the
> original form by Mr. Ken Miller when the weather gets better. Thank you
