MAKING GREAT PROGRESS!
After we realized how quickly the Rev. Duke Log Cabin was deteriorating, we launched a campaign to save it. An experienced log home restoration contractor was called in to give us an assessment and an estimate of the cost for a restoration so the Board of Trustees had an idea of the funds we would need to raise.
The estimate came in at a maximum cost of $175,000. With the help of our local councilman and State delegate we were able to obtain $150,000 in Bond Bill money from the State of Maryland, however, we are required to a match of $25,000. To date, we have raised over $12,000 in donations toward our $25,000 goal. We are asking for your help to save the circa 1800 Rev. Duke Log Cabin. Please send your donation to the Historical Society or make it through PayPal.
