CHESTERVILLE — The two-story structure that once housed one of the town’s two fire departments is being renovated to serve as the town’s Heritage Society. As the building aged it has shown many signs of decay and was in need of renovations to transition it from a fire station to the Heritage Society.

The organization’s goal is to provide the collection, presentation, preservation and interpretation of Chesterville’s heritage for the community.

Members of the Heritage Society gave the building in Chesterville Center a facelift with a new roof as the latest project.Work days are planned once a month to complete the remaining tasks. Progress made so far include installing a new floor, electricity to the building, new lighting, insulation, structural repairs and wall board installation. Approximately 12 active members and a core of dedicated volunteers are working on the project. The organization welcomes support both in the form of monetary donations and physical labor. Funds are needed to complete the proposed remodel.

For more information or to make a donation call President Linda Harris at 778-2863, email [email protected] or call Secretary Cindy Whittier at 778-3078.
