Gifts pushing Hermitage project along

Work proceeding swiftly but donations still needed to help tell the site’s rich story.

Workers from Rock Solid Stone Masons prepare the Foundation for a new steel structure which will hold the Hermitage ruins together.

Workers have quickly dismantled the existing structure, carefully cataloged each stone and begun pouring the foundation of a structure that will be in place for generations to come.

With construction proceeding, the project is turning heads and attracting new donations. To date, the $600,000 project has received $544,000 worth of funding, enough to begin construction. Donations, however, are still needed to help complete construction and fund the landscaping, benches and interpretive panels which will bring the site’s rich history to life.
