We are excited to announce our meeting with the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) for a final review of our National Register application.
A ton of work and research has gone into the process. We are especially grateful to Liz Rapp for her tenacious efforts to make this possible.
Thanks to all those who wrote us letters of support and to all of our followers, supporters, and volunteers! Without you, we wouldn't be where we are today.
Next, the application will be forwarded to the federal level.
People Make the Cumberland!
We wouldn't be where we are today if it weren't for our dedicated board, sponsors, and volunteers. Check them out below as they're busy repairing the steeple, meeting with local nonprofits, and more!
Thank you for getting to know us!
History was made on Wednesday, April 27. With a fresh coat of paint and new hand-cut cedar shingles, the steeple was raised to its original spot atop the Cumberland. This truly historic event wouldn't have been possible if not for YOU!
Gary Goby inspects details of the gable. His donation of talent and time included duplicating details and supplying materials.
After many days of cleaning, priming, and painting by volunteers, the details speak for themselves.
TGC Structural mounts the cupola to the steeple, which itself was mounted the day before.
Jody and Emma ready their paintbrushes!
Restored steeple and components.
