Raise the roof campaign

In 2003, the Marshall County Historical Society leased the Cockayne Farmhouse in order to preserve it. The most critical issue was to rebuild the deteriorated box gutter system and to redeck and replace the slate roof - Phase I of the restoration effort.

Due to limited funding, the Society proceeded on a time and material basis. By the Fall of 2004, the south gutter had been rebuilt, the main roof decking repaired and titanium underlayment covered the roof deck to protect the farmhouse while additional funding was secured. On September 5, 2005, work on the main roof was completed - the entire box gutter system had been rebuilt and NorthCountry Black Slate nailed to the decking.

Our elite sponsors noted below provided significant sources of revenue through grants and material and service donations to advance Phase I. The "Raise the Roor' campaign was an additional very important element to providing matching funds and achieving completion of Phase I.  We are grateful for the generous support of these  donors.
