It's been about a year since we started fundraising for the restoration of the Pump House. A lot has happened in the last year, most notiably, how the residents of Oregon have contributed to the project. We have raised over $46,000 for the restoration. Many residents have purchased a engraved brick for the new walkway up to the building, and the Village of Oregon Historical Preservation Commission and Village Board have endorsed the restored Pump House to become the Oregon Welcome Center.
Our goal is to fill the entire walk way with engraved bricks, we have sold over 50 bricks so far. We will take new orders until December 31st.
We are working on the inside of the building, taking down the old ceiling, working on new flooring, new electrical, new lights, adding air conditioning and heating, installing new windows and doors. We are also completing some work on the outside of the building, we are replacing bricks and re-tuckpointing.
Please continue to support our efforts!
