Marion Township Hall
Client: Glacial Hills RC&D
Location: Baileyville, KS
Use: Meeting Hall (original Grange Hall)
Size: 1,840 s.f.
Completion: 2005 & 2006
With a 2004 Heritage Trust Fund grant from the Kansas State Historical Society, the Marion Township Hall now has a stable foundation. The original stone foundation had deteriorated to a point that it no longer provided a stable support for the wood framed building. The below-grade stones were fractured from freeze/thaw cycles and were replaced with a new concrete grade beam. Above-grade stones were relayed to maintain the original appearance and deteriorated sills/joists were replaced.
Wood Siding Restoration
A 2006 HTF grant aided in the restoration of the original wood lap siding of the building. Other future projects include window restoration, interior restoration, and mechanical/electrical system upgrades.
