We've Moved!

Current News:

Now the new foundation is being poured. We are raising funds to pay for this important next step. You can see the sad state of the outside; its current condition seems worse than before the move. This not-so-beautiful structure badly needs attention to restore it to its original condition. Then it will be a lovely addition to the neighborhood again.

In case you missed it, on October 17 and 18 the Cumberland was moved to its new location at Santiam and Pine in Albany. Transport took place over two days to minimize overtime costs. Workers got the building over the railroad tracks on Sunday. The building finished its journey and was  rotated into final position by winch on Monday. (Video clips are available on Facebook.)

A new roof is needed soon. Painting will probably be scheduled within the year. 

Watch the progress & keep in mind that it all takes money to make this happen. Please make a generous donation today! Because every dollar counts!
