All of the work done on the project thus far has been completed on a volunteer basis, from the architectural designs and drawings to the construction that has begun on the boiler plant. When completed, the boiler will be home to the Boat/Transportation Museum.
By moving the boats that are currently in the main house of the museum, there will be more room to bring other items down from storage on the second floor of the Creamery, said historical society President Karlene Miller. There will also be additional space for items in the connector wing between the boat museum and the Creamery.
Miller, Winship and Thomsen were hopeful the concrete for the boiler plant would be "cured" and construction could begin moving ahead as of Aug. 11.
"Once things get into motion, things are going to go quickly," Thomsen said. "I'm so excited about the final move-in."
