Our next project is handicapped-accessibility, to bring the Meeting House into compliance with state and federal requirements while preserving its historic character. Included will be access to the front entrance and main hall and a handicapped-accessible bathroom. Due to begin in 2017, this project is supported by matching grants received from the Massachusetts Cultural Council Facilities Fund and Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area.
In addition to our business partners, we also wish to thank all of our members and the many individual donors whose support makes our work possible. With your help, we will continue to maintain and preserve this wonderful building to ensure it remains a vibrant part of the Shirley community for generations to come.
