WORK CONTINUES THROUGH 2008 IN
REBUILDING THE POQUOSON MUSEUM BARN
On Saturday, March 22, demolition work began on the remaining portions of the Poquoson Museum Barn, severely damaged by fire in November 2007. Museum members began work that morning performing the demolition and moving the debris into a hugh pile for pick up and disposal.
The demolition work comprised the first phase of the of the museum's "Barn Rebuilding" project. The architectual drawing for the new barn was completed and approved by the museum board. Construction began once the debris was removed, and has continued through the summer and fall.
The museum would very much like to involve the community in the project and is planning an "old fashioned barn raising". Your volunteer help or contribution would be greatly appreciated.
To volunteer for the "Barn Rebuild", please call 868-9116. For further information call 868-7630.
Donations may be sent to: Poquoson Museum, PO Box 2163, Poquoson, VA 23662.
Members of the museum thank you for your consideration and help in making this a museum of which we can all be proud.
