Our beautiful building, designed by C. C. McAlpine, is a wonderful small scale example of Romanesque Revival design sporting round arch windows, porch arches, steep gables, hip roofed dormers and a round tower. Completed in 1894 and opened in 1896, it has been serving residents of Charlestown for 123 years. Ten years ago we began planning for restoration of the brickwork. This summer the project will begin. It will be a two year project of skilled and painstaking work, but when finished this jewel in our community will be standing strong and ready to serve the people of Charlestown for another century. Thank you Charlestown for funding our capital reserve fund and thank you LCHIP for your grant. Your combined generosity have made this project possible.
