We are pleased to inform you that our collective RANHDI fundraising efforts have exceeded the very significant $17,000 mark! Thank you!


As of today, more than 120 contributors who reside in the proposed National Register Historic District, and even some others who reside outside of the district, have contributed generously. This is a great achievement for our neighborhood and toward our objective to make the state rehabilitation tax credits available.

We have a community sponsor, St. John’s-Grace Episcopal Church located on Colonial Circle in the proposed National Register historic district.
