One of the main challenges of the historical society is to maintain and operate the O'Reilly House Museum.  There is currently a great need for exterior repairs.  This will include repairing windows and replacing the clapboard and moundings around the building.  It is estimate to cost about $30,000 and we can get help for probably half of it. However we still need to raise about $15,000.  Private donations are important for this.

We invite individuals, businesses, organizations and others to consider making a financial donation to help us carry out this important work.  Any amount will be welcome. Help keep the memory of our past alive and support the local tourist trade.
