OIRF preserves historic architecture

Old Island Restoration Foundation President, Kelly Friend, presented a check for $8,400.00 to Pastor Denise McLeod of Trinity Presbyterian Church 717 Simonton St. This grant was for upgrading of the electrical in the manse.  Clergy housing allows the ministers to be freed holding other jobs in order to afford living in our high rent city and concentrate on the congregation’s needs.

OIRF earns funds to support historic preservation through their annual Home Tour series.  Homes are currently being sought for next season.  Show-worthy houses can be nominated by writing to tours@oirf.org or call Teri at 305-294-9501.
