The Refuge building was first constructed in 1921 as a school for African American children. We acquired it in 2007 after it had been sitting empty for 8 years. Thousands of volunteer hours and dollars enabled it to be opened that summer. But it has several needs:
1. A new roof
2. Parking lots repaved
4. A new fence
5. A new breezeway connecting building
6. A signage sponsor for these projects
If you or someone you know would be interested in sponsoring this much needed remodeling or would like to name the building in honor of someone, please feel free to let us know.
