Holmestead Being Repaired

Calamity at the Holmestead as the roofers hired to fix the tin roof over the front entryway have discovered that the boards underneath were rotted through. The St. Croix Historical Society, which maintains the building, recently received a grant for over $9,000 from the Belvedere Foundation to repair the roof and the hanging fixtures. Officers of the society are contacting the foundation to see if more money may be donated to help cover the additional costs. (Photo by Lura Jackson)
