Caln's Historic Hexagonal Schoolhouse to Receive New Roof!
A replacement roof is currently being installed on the schoolhouse, helping to ensure the beauty and safety of this irreplaceable gem. The Schoolhouse also recently received a fresh coat of paint, and is a welcoming site along G.O. Carlson Blvd.
Spackman Farm Updates:
The BOC has granted the Historical Commission's request for funding to replace the deteriorating Spackman Farm Barn Roof. Bids will be advertised later this month, and the contract will be awarded in late September. Saving this barn from imminent collapse is only the first step towards restoring this Historic Property to grandeur. Other plans currently in motion are the installation of outdoor power, lighting and security cameras to prevent future acts of vandalism.
