Last year, the Bridgeville Historical Society suffered a financial loss when a painting project cost $1,700 more than anticipated.
Now, the Society has set up a capital repair fund to maintain its headquarters at 441 Station St. The goal is to raise $100 each month.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
[Society President Mary] Weise estimates the building, built in 1875 and expanded in the 1930s, will need a new roof, heating and cooling system and interior painting done within the next five years.
“It’s like owning a house or building. We have to prepare for anything,” she said on operating the restored train station.
December’s gas bill was $280 but may go up to $400 this month with the cold weather, she said.
