Funding Needs

As the cost of restoration for such as large building as Prospect Place is extreme the Adams Center is always in search of donations and grants.  Monies are used not only to fund the bricks and mortar restoration of the house (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) but also for our community outreach programs.
