New Roof for Tudor Hall This Summer

The Aegis (Harford County's local newspaper) reported on June 3, 2009, that the Harford County Board of Estimates "approved a contract for $81,850 with Decker Contracting Inc. of Elkton to remove and replace the existing roof of Tudor Hall . . . to include fascia, trim and soffit . . . The project also includes removal and replacement of the existing chimney."

Work on the new roof and chimney is currently expected to begin in mid-July and be completed by the end of August.

Spirits of Tudor Hall is working with the Historical Society of Harford County, the Junius B. Booth Society, the Harford County Historic Preservation Commission, and Harford County Historic Preservation Planner Sarah Corey to develop a plan to salvage and safely store as much of the tin roofing as possible.

In addition, we are exploring creative ideas for putting the salvaged materials to good use.

Updated information will be posted on the blog as it becomes available.
