“Chatham Windows: Witness to History”
In late 2014, the National Park Service replaced all of the shutters on the exterior of Chatham Manor and the Laundry and Kitchen ancillary buildings, as the existing shutters were in very poor repair. Unfortunately, the funding was not sufficient to allow for all of the exterior window frames and glazing to be repaired and completely repainted, nor for the total repair and repainting of the doors on the manor. Friends of Chatham is pleased to have the Window & Door Repair Project underway and we need your help!
You can “adopt” a Window and/or Door and help Friends of Chatham help Chatham Manor.
There are 8 Sections of the Manor and Ancillary Buildings. The window and door repairs for each will be completed separately, with the majority of the repairs being started in the Spring of 2016, as weather permits. Section 1 is the River View Center Section. Work on this section will start on two window in 2015 with funding provided by the Duff McDuff Green Jr. Fund of The Community Foundation. The remaining windows and door in Section 1 will be completed in 2016, as will the remaining sections.
