IT’S WINTER IN THE CALEDONIA HISTORICAL PARK

BUT THE VOLUNTEERS HAVE STILL BEEN WORKING!

There has been alot of shoveling and other hard labor taking place by the CHS volunteers to get the Big Museum building (aka Botting Road Barn/Machine Shed) ready for the final move.  We need some good weather in order to finish the move.

RECENT EVENTS!

Thanks to everyone who supported the Christmas Gift Boutique held in the CHS log cabin and the bake/Christmas items sale at the 1877 Town Hall the weekend of December 3rd and 4th.  It was a success, so mark your 2017 calendars for a repeat event.

Work on the Big Museum is Progressing!

The foundation is poured and the CHS volunteers have been shoveling and leveling gravel for  the floor of the Big Museum (formerly known as the Botting Rd machine shed/barn).  Hopefully, the weather will hold long enough that the movers can place the barn on the foundation soon.  Thanks to everyone who has been following and helping the progress of the Big Museum project.
