The Felt Estate Restoration project, which began in 2002, has brought a once boarded-up structure back to life and usefulness. This community project, completed using donated funds and donated labor and materials, stands as a testimony of what can be done when government with vision and people with passion work together for good. The Felt Mansion Restoration project could not be possible without the financial support of individuals and businesses.
All donations to Friends of the Felt Estate are tax-deductible. Receipts available upon request.
