With the restoration of the Pump House, now the Welcome Center behind us, efforts are now being focused on restoring and repainting the Tin Man style Water Tower. Our funding raising goal was $20,000, with the Village of Oregon helping with the rest of the cost for the restoration and repainting. Currently we are at $25,527. We are still collecting donations, and they can be sent to the following address:
Village of Oregon, 117 Spring Street, Oregon, WI 53574. Checks are tax deductible and should be made out to: Preserve the Water Tower Fund
We also for sale engraved Tin Man brick pavers for $125 for our new Tin Man patio.
The plan is to have the Tin Man restored and repainted in spring of 2016, and we are on schedule for this to happen. Our plans also include adding a new weather vane on top of the Tower, to replace the previous one that rusted off. We are also planning on lighting the Tower at night tastefully with new LED lights on the legs and catwalk.
