What is going on with the Carus Historic White Schoolhouse? Here’s an update:
The trek across the fields was successful and the building is now located on Evans Farm off S Mueller Road. The linked article from The Canby Herald newspaper has more details.
The final piece of saving the White Building is fundraising. The Friends report they have secured $75,000 in donations, which covers half the cost of moving the building. As Chris Ritter, President of the Friends nonprofit, said, “So many in the community have already generously donated, and we are hopeful that as more people learn about the work we’re doing, they too will pitch in to save this local landmark and be part of the efforts to turn the schoolhouse into a community space for all to enjoy!”
To learn more, make a tax-deductible donation, or volunteer services, donors and members of the community are asked to go to carushistoricschoolhouse.org
