Starling Hall – Moving Right Along
In early January, 2018 Starling Hall was relocated back 30 feet on its existing property and onto a new foundation. Until this move, this beautiful former Grange hall sat seven feet from Maine Route 17, a busy Maine highway.
Starling Hall’s relocation was absolutely essential as its former location represented a danger to public use of the facility and because slush, salt and road debris continued to hit and damage the front of the building. The Maine Commission for Historic Preservation and the National Park Service approved the hall’s repositioning to insure the integrity of Starling Hall’s status as a Historic Building.
Our very dedicated FOSH membership continue to submit grant applications and meet with prospective corporate donners in search of funding so that the necessary work can be completed. We recognize, however, that our greatest advocates, our best source for funding, is the greater community who will enjoy the fruit of FOSH’s endeavors long into the future.
By contributing to the Friends of Starling Hall you allow us to continue our forward progress towards installation of new windows, upgrade of the electrical, reconnecting the septic system and drilling a well. Individual and Family donations allow FOSH to complete this project in a very timely manner so that Starling Hall use may very soon resume!
