Another year is coming to a close and Beattie-Powers Place hasn’t been busier! This year we not only exceeded the number of events we’ve offered to the community for free, but we’ve also broadened our programming to include a poetry series and more gardening lectures – all of which have been warmly received. At the same time we’ve embarked on a major reconstruction of our historic porch steps, thanks to the generosity of Richard Philp, retaining their architectural character and ensuring their utility for years to come.
Last year your support of our Angel campaign made all the difference. And this year, we’ll be ear-marking much of your support for the renovation of a new space at Beattie-Powers, which will offer a workshop area we hope to also make handicap accessible. For years, we’ve avoided the basement room across the hall from the dining area because of the asbestos abatement work required. However, we’re now inspired to tackle that challenge recognizing the potential to increase the working space within the house. We envision a series of hands on workshops for gardening and historic preservation with the renovation of this room.
You can get a glimpse of the space in the image to the right.
