Friends of the Castle Green
The Friends of the Castle Green is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) which raises money to perform restoration of the historic fabric of Castle Green to the standards of the Secretary of Interior. As a non-profit, their mission revolves around maintaining the architectural and historical integrity of Castle Green and fostering community engagement with this landmark.
Non-profit organizations like the Friends of the Castle Green play a crucial role in the conservation of historic sites. They work to raise awareness about the historical significance of the building, secure funding, and undertake restoration projects to the building.
The Friends of the Castle Green organize our Spring tour at the Castle each year. This is a special occasion where we open the doors to the public to learn more about the history of the building and soak in its magic.
Recently, the Friends of the Castle Green organized the restoration of the glass lampshades located on the Veranda and in the Sunroom. The group collaborated closely with a world-renowned glass artist to create exact replicas of the originals that hung from the ceiling over a 100 years ago.
Upcoming Projects and Goals for Restoration.
The restoration of historic buildings holds immense importance in preserving our cultural identity and architectural heritage. These structures serve as tangible links to the past, telling the stories of past eras and the people who shaped them. Beyond their aesthetic charm, historic buildings contribute to the character and sense of place in communities, fostering a connection between generations. By safeguarding historic structures, we ensure that the unique narratives embedded in these buildings endure, offering a window into our shared history for future generations. The restoration of historic buildings is, therefore, a commitment to cultural continuity.
As we celebrate our 125th year, we are working towards the goals of restoring and repainting our domes at the top of our Bridge and rooftop. All proceeds from the Gala will go towards this goal.
