Save Cramerton's Historic Baltimore School

Cramer - the founder of Cramerton, and the Gaston County Textile Industry.  This fundraiser will help Mr. Glenn begin the process of restoring the school and sharing this historical gem with others. 

Mr. Glenn and The Historic Baltimore School are the sole beneficiaries of this campaign.  Ms. Cauthen is strictly the organizer and does not have access to the donated funds.
