Let's Complete the Restoration! How you can help . . .
Venice Heritage is seeking additional donations to complete the Lord-Higel House restoration.
READ THIS ARTICLE written by Earle Kimel that appeared in the Sarasota-Herald Tribune. The article interviewed VHI President Ronnie Fernandez, Treasurer Dorothy Korwek, and Historical Resources Manager Harry Klinkhamer, about the status of renovations at the Lord-Higel House. In the photo on the right, Ball Construction carpenters install roof rafters on the soon to be completed Accessory building in back of the Lord-Higel House. This building will house a unisex handicap accessible bathroom on the left and a utility closet on the right. Funds are available to complete this building, but VHI still needs funds to complete the interior of the house.
There are ways to contribute. Purchase an item from our GIFT SHOP OR Make a direct donation via PayPal, or check.
