Gutter Replacement & Restoration

St. Joseph's Cultural Center is a piece of Grass Valley's living history dating from the Gold Rush.  Previously an orphange run by the Sisters of Mercy, the Cultural Center is now home to The Grass Valley Museum and various local Artists who rent studio space here.  The Chapel and beautiful 150+ year old rose gardens are used for weddings and other special events throughout the year.

Right now, the Cultural Center is in desperate need of replacing the existing gutter & downspout system which is rusting out in areas, pulling away from the roofline in others and is causing severe damage to the wooden structure of the buildings.

Because of the size of the building (4 stories) we would also need a scaffolding structure to be in place during the replacement period.  The bid for the gutters (with a discount) is at $26,000 and the scaffolding bid is $20,000.  We are hoping to raise $60,000 to cover the total cost plus any incidental repairs that come in.  Anything over & above would be used to replace the wooden buttresses and 3rd floor decking which have also suffered the ravages of time & rain.

Hopefully we can raise at least 25% of the funds within the first 2 months so we can schedule the start of repairs/replacement.  Then we can at least get started on saving this small piece of Grass Valley's heritage.

We want to restore this historic gem to her orginal beauty and keep her available to the community for many years to come.

The Historic Mount St. Mary's Preservation Committee has been charged with maintaining the architectural and historical aspects of this gem and your help would be greatly appreciated in furthering our commitment.
