Today launched the next step of our biggest residential project to date, the restoration of 232 Hydrick Street, otherwise known as the Governor Blackwood Bungalow. The story hit the front page of our local Spartanburg Herald-Journal (above the fold, at that!): http://www.goupstate.com/article/20090622/ARTICLES/906221008/1083/ARTICLES?Title=Preservation-Trust-to-begin-work-on-governor-s-home
Just as the economy was looking grim, and our prospects for raising in-kind donations from local businesses slim, the feature story has added wind back in our sails. Many thanks to the local media and local businesses for pledging their support and following the project. So far, Clement Lumber, Grasstenders, and Hodge Carpets have promised to assist with the project!
Ken Pangel of MP Services, LLC will be handling the reconstruction of the home!
