DADE COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY NEWSLETTER

 SUMMER 2012

  We have been busy at Dade County Historical Society since our last newsletter at the beginning of this year.  Our April meeting was election of officers.  Cindy Wilson was elected President, Ken Miller, Vice President, Fernita Cook, Secretary and Dave Coplen, Treasurer.   Several members of the Society are continuing to meet at least one day a week at Hulston Mill Park to keep it in shape.

  In our last newsletter we talked about what projects we would like to accomplish this year.  The following is that list with notations on which ones have been completed or are close to completion.

    1. To build two informational signs and make a start of the Park Entrance Sign, all in dire need of replacing.  We have completed the two informational signs. 

 

       2.  To add a 4’ concrete sidewalk at the shower house.  The concrete sidewalk was completed prior to our Civil War reenactment.  We give a big thank you to Greenfield Ready Mix.  They helped us tremendously by donating half of the concrete and gravel needed for the sidewalk.

    3. To start Phase One on a Cook Shack to be added onto the current picnic shelter house. We hope the addition of a small kitchen area will enhance the rental of the shelter. An additional 12’ of concrete and roof will need to be added to the shelter to put it back as it was.   We have just recently started on this project.  Our hope is that we will have it completed enough for Bois D’Arc Days the last weekend in September. 

 

 

 COOK SHACK

  1. To start on the foundation for the Weir Summer Kitchen Cabin (HAVEN’T STARTED)
  2. Build 3 picnic tables (HAVEN’T STARTED)
  3. To complete the fire rings which were started on last fall.  We have completed 12 fire rings for the park.  

  One of the things not planned on was some major repair on the groundskeeper’s house.  A window was removed that had been located in the tub/shower area.  It was rotting along with the tub surround. The bathroom was renovated with the sink and commode changing location making a more practical use of the space.  The back concrete porch also had to be removed in order to replace rotted seals and joists and a small deck was added back in that location.
