URGENT: Roof Stabilization Fundraiser Underway
The Friends have launched an emergency fundraising effort to stabilize the slate roof on the Stewartstown Train Station. Built in 1914, the original slate roof over the second story, as well as the freight house, are crumbling and no longer water-tight. A series of spring storms with strong winds and golf ball-sized hail has damaged several pieces of slate. Over time, water has also leaked inside the station and damaged the plaster and lath walls and ceiling. Volunteers have made temporary repairs to stabilize the roof and upstairs interior rooms. Lower sections of the roof were in such bad shape just a few years ago the slate was removed and replaced with asphalt shingles. The Slate Roof will be replaced with metal roofing.
We currently have $2,680 raised of the $5,000 needed. Please consider making a donation via go fund me at: https://www.gofundme.com/
