The Cheney Depot has been relocated and set on a new foundation, and exterior repairs have been made, including roof repairs. Additional dollars must be raised to complete rehabilitation of the building interior, making it ready for a commercial tenant.
There is a lot to do, but we can do it with your help! Each dollar raised in the community will be matched by a challenge grant from Dr. Peter O Hansen and Karolee Hansen, up to a maximum of $700,000.
We have also been awarded another substantial grant from the Washington State Historical Society, and interior rehab is underway. The Depot now has updated electrical, plumbing and heating systems, and increased insulation. A fire sprinkler system is also being added.
Look for construction to continue in Spring 2023!
