Want to join us in making a difference? We're raising money to renovate the roof on The Granger House Victorian Museum (aka Marion Historical Museum Inc), and any donation will help make an impact.
The project involves restoring the cedar-shingle roofs of the Granger House Victorian Museum and accompanying Carriage House. Both are progressively deteriorating, which places these historic structures – both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places – at risk. Repair and restoration will strictly follow the US Secretary of Interior Standards and Guidelines for Historic Preservation.
This preservation project also allows us to continue our mission: "We exist to engage the community and to make Iowa’s past relevant to its present". We also strive to promote heritage tourism, by preserving a unique example of Midwestern middle-class family life in the 19th Century. By restoring the roofs, we also preserve the materials, and the craftsmanship, that created this community generations ago.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us at The Granger House.https://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/community/marions-victorian-granger-house-museum-needs-a-new-roof-20190512?fbclid=IwAR28Bwn6K26rrZ7dahgDJuXRx0kgPeMuaPp3YbmgQeb3lr0wfvjKVdDONgo
