Arvonia society challenges Osage County to help revive church’s tin ceiling

051915-arvoniaArvonia Historic Preservation Society’s Tin Ceiling Revival campaign is coming to a close, and the society is challenging Osage Countians to donate to this effort to restore the tin ceiling in the church at the former town site of Arvonia.

With work steadily progressing on the Arvonia school and church, the AHPS began the campaign to restore the tin ceiling, which was in disrepair with some of the tin hanging down. Most of the ceiling will be able to be used, but some will need replaced. The goal is to “revive” 1148 tiles.
