The Port Stanley Schoolhouse is an island gem. Saved and restored by the generosity and hard work of many in this community, we now count on your goodwill and love of Lopez history to help us maintain it. At times like these, the importance of preserving our history and coming together as a community are highlighted. The funds raised for this project will help us protect the integrity of the schoolhouse, as well as helping to keep some local folks employed during this economically stressful time. Maintenance needed includes reglazing windowpanes to prevent water intrusion, touching up exterior paint, and refinishing UV-damaged interior woodwork. Excess funds will be dedicated to future maintenance needs at the schoolhouse.
Our goal is to raise $10,000. A generous donor is matching the first $4,000 we raise!
