The Conservancy is funding emergency repairs at three of the historic buildings at the Weeksville Heritage Center. Roof tarps were installed over leaking roofs on May 30. This will preserve the vulnerable interiors of the houses until the City commences a roof replacement project sometime next year.

Protecting the houses from further rain damage will assist the nonprofit Center in their ongoing efforts to preserve one of the most important free-Black settlements in the country. In addition to the roof tarps, the Conservancy is looking into funding other repairs that will help stabilize the historic Hunterfly Road Houses.
