1862 Stage Station Restoration
In 2012 we began our 'Save Our Station' campaign in order to completely restore the Stage Station to its' 1862 look and to stabilize it for future generations to enjoy. After five years of intense fundraising and many
thousands of hours of volunteer labor, we are very close to finishing the restoration of our beloved Stage Station. The major piece that is needed now is a new roof that will cover not only the Stage Station but the newly
constructed historically correct porch. The estimate for the roof is $14,800 and funds from Go-Fund-Me will go towards this final step.
Besides being a national landmark and a popular educational site, the Stage Station is the heart of the Virginia Dale community. In its 155 years, it has been a post office, store, dance hall and now is used by this ranching community for dances, church services, dinners, and all manner of community get togethers. Many tours are given in a year to local and worldwide visitors, many as an educational experience for local schoolchildren.

We thank all of you who can help us save our beloved Stage Station so that it can continue to be a celebration of the early pioneers and an inspiration for coming generations!
