July 2019 Update: Handicap walkway under construction

with No Comments

Thanks to a town CPA grant, work has now begun on the handicap walkway to the GBHS Museum. The concrete ramp and its attached wooden deck for wheelchair access to the porch are now installed.

A Colonial era handrail between the two deck posts, and marble step adjoining the front path will be added to the deck for general use. A stone path and landscaping at the end of the walkway linking it to the Dutch Wagon House and handicap accessible parking are also projected.

The Society gratefully thanks both Hewins & Sons of Sheffield and Bassett Foundations of Southfield for their work on this project at discounted rates. When completed, the walkway and deck will meet the US government ADA standards and Town Planning Board and Building Inspector requirements.
