2014 Project Update!!!

GREAT NEWS!!!  The Venado Historical Society was awarded a grant agreement from the Sonoma County Landmarks Commission in the amount of $14,500.00!!!

This will allow us to begin Phase 1 of the project which is to secure the building.  We will restore and rebuild, (as needed) the exterior including rafters, roof, windows, and some of the siding.

Special thanks go to several professionals who donated their time and expertise to fulfill the requirements for the grant proposal:

Dennis Fagent ~ Engineer
Obie Bowman ~ Architect
Holly Hoods ~ Historian
Pete Deidrich ~ Architect
& Healdsburg Lumber

The project will begin according to our contractor's schedule.  We greatly appreciate his offer to volunteer his labor for this historic restoration project.
