The latest news this week is that the
Farmington Town Board deferred action
on a resolution to demolish this meetinghouse
until March 28, to allow us as much time as
possible to come up with a plan.
We are most appreciative of their willingness
to work with us, consistent with public health
and safety. The clock is ticking for this very,
very important part of America's history.
Here is our status:
1. DONATIONS--Thank you!
a) 501c3 organization
to take ownership of the building;
b) place to store the building.
We have some possibilities for both,
but we are still working on this;
c) funding--we are still trying to
figure out how much Phase I
(documenting, dismantling, and
moving the building) will cost,
and we are working on a
combination of grants and
donations to raise this.

Thanks so much to Syracuse

Sunday approved a donation

this meetinghouse. We
appreciate both so much.
