Four Facade Grants Awarded in 2018

Friends of Old Annville has awarded four Facade Grants in 2018 totalling $6,000, supporting historic preservation projects in Annville, Pennsylvania.

The project descriptions for each of the grants are given below.

426 East Main Street — roof repair ($2,000). As homeowner Tamara Heagy expressed in an email, “Thank you so very much! You have no idea how much this helps put my life back in order, with a fire, flood, and roof repair all in one year. I’m glad you all like what I did. I don’t have a lot of money to put into the aesthetics of my home and this town, but I do what I can, when I can. Thanks to FOOA for making this happen.”

 

 

44 East Main Street – painting ($2,000). In the words of the building’s owners, Kerrie Smedley & Patrick Brewer, “Thank you, members of the FOOA Board! We could not be happier with this award. The project has been extensive (and expensive) and we are very grateful for your support. We hope the improvements in the building are a source of enjoyment by the community!

 

 

 

216 East Main Street (Annville Free Library) – window replacement ($1,000). As the Free Library’s Director Dee Neff exclaimed in an email, “That is great news! Please thank the Board of Directors of the Friends of Old Annville for this very welcome grant. The windows have been a great improvement not only in an aesthetic sense, but they have proven to block exterior noise as well as drafts. Patrons and staff have both commented favorably on them.”

 

 

 

155 North Moyer Street – Historic Annville Train Station ($1,000).  The Facade Grant Program of Friends of Old Annville donated $1,000 to the Train Station Endowment Fund, set up for repair and maintenance of the train station building.
