1894 School House Needs Painting! Update

Nestled on a bluff above the Columbia River in scenic Skamokawa, WA stands this 1894 two-story schoolhouse. Central School House sits as a “historical gem.” It was refurbished in 1985 by civic-minded residents who formed the non-profit organization called “Friends of Skamokawa.’’ Since 1986 it has been home to the “River Life Interpretive Center” with a mission to house historical archives and reflect river life and culture through historical displays and exhibits. Central School House is a 30‘x50’ building. Plans for this painting project include:
• Pre-prep pressure wash cleaning with mildew cleaner
• Scraping of any loose paint and priming
• Caulking around doors and windows
• Paint the building with custom paint including the bell tower, doors, windows and trim
• Rental of a Genie Lift
Please join us in our effort to raise $16,000 for a new coat of paint!
Here are all of the ways you can donate and thank you to everyone who has donated so far, we are very grateful!
