We did it! Thanks for your support.
A new roof was placed on this historic house in early November 2017, just before the rainy season. We also removed some more wood rot in the siding and replaced a window.
Historic Gallery Needs New Roof
The historic Trinidad Art Gallery building was built in the year 1900 and known by local historians as the ‘Riecke House’. This property was gifted to the Land Trust in 2011 by Ned Lee Simmons as directed in his will. The building is currently in need of a new roof. This season’s abundance of rain is good for our rivers, but as we see, can cause problems to roads and historical buildings with old roofs. Unfortunately, the rains have strained the limits of the aging roof and leaks have been finding their way into the interior.
TCLT is working with a small group of artist community volunteers on a fundraising effort to purchase a new roof for the Trinidad Art Gallery. Our goal is to raise $15,000 by this fall, before next winter’s storms.
