Big News in Peru today.
Dorothy and Eddie will be there to recieve this presitigious certificate with Dorothy having her 100th birthday in October. The National Significance designation indicates how these buildings played a vital roll in the development of America and aren't just another old structure.
You may remember that the buildings were seriously vandalized a couple years ago when foolish individuals broke out a bunch of the windows. Volunteers did what they could to close them up before the winter weather set-in.
While working with the state and Partners in Preservation to get this secured, the property will now be eligible for grants to solidify the structures and preserve them for years to come. There is lots of planning, grant writing and fund raising to be done in the very near future.
