On Saturday, May 7, Preservation Piedmont is pleased to co-sponsor a program with the Scottsville ARB and the Scottsville Museum--"The Building Tells Us What to Do: Restoring the Canal Basin Warehouse"--from 2-5pm.
Walter and John Neighbors are restoring the Canal Basin Warehouse (c. 1840), the last of the thick row of warehouses and mills that used to sit between the canal and Main Street. They are carefully reproducing all the original building components with the same materials, often using tools they have fabricated. The open house format allows for them and their team members to demonstrate and answer questions, so you can stay an hour or as long as you want. Join us at the old Dollar General Store building on Valley Street for this fascinating presentation. This program is a repeat of a January event that was a huge success with more than 125 people attending.
