The work has begun on the Sheldall Schoolhouse rehabilitation! The team from Hedberg & Son Roofing did a wonderful job installing the new cedar shake roof in July.
As you can see, the new roof is a vast improvement over the old moss covered roof.
The Museums of Story City have been fortunate to receive grant funding to help cover the cost of the rehabilitation. Our local Questers, the Praeri Rail Trail chapter, received a State Quester Grant in the amount of $3,959. To this amount the local Questers added $1,041 to make the grant total of $5,000. The Museums of Story City will also be receiving funding from an HRDP Country School Grant Program through the State Historical Society of Iowa.
