The Project
Perhaps as early as 2009, rumors were heard that the building known as the Old Shul had been purchased and was being refurbished. These rumors were finally confirmed during August, 2010, when photos of the partly completed modifications became available. These show that a second story has been put on the building, windows modernized, a single-story addition added, and the lot has been surrounded by a combination fence-wall:

In the detail photos, the cornice just under the former roof-line is clearly visible, and even remnants of the customary white-plaster cover may be seen. It seems likely that the building will again be given a plaster outer-coat.
