Stone Building

Stone Building Floor Installed

As announced previously, The Friends of Hemlock Gorge succeeded in our application for a Public-Private Partnership with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). The Friends earmarked $2500 for a new floor and other repairs to the Stone Building, and that amount was matched by the DCR. On February 23, we were notified by the DCR that they were preparing to pour the floor “very soon,” and that the Friends of Hemlock Gorge would be asked for input on design. That design input did not occur, but The Friends nonetheless are pleased to announce that as a result of the Public-Private Partnership we established with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) a new concrete floor has now been installed in the Stone Building. Pictures and more information to follow soon.

The pouring of a level concrete floor means that our long hoped for plans to make the Stone Building a great venue for Friends’ activities is becoming a reality (see photo top right). The new floor will, hopefully, be followed soon by repair of the electrical system and the new windows, for which funds have already been generously donated by the Sangiolo Trust.
