The Building Committee reports that most of the exterior work on the 1860s one-room school at 184 Holmes Road has been completed, including new siding, windows, doors, and a roof. An accessible ramp still needs to be built and the chim- ney pointed. When funds allow, a new septic system will be installed. Our local contractor, Alden Joinery & Restoration, will then proceed to work on interior partitions and roughing in wiring, etc. To date we have raised $166,000 toward a goalof $280,000. Please help us restore this historical building by sending a tax-deductible donation to Scarborough Historical Society and Museum, PO Box 156, Scarborough, ME 04070-0156 or donate through https:// We are a 501(c)(3) organization. For more information or if you can provide in-kind services, call 207-885-9997 or contact us at Thank you for your continued support.
