At the end of July, Friends of Hathorn House filed an application to the Regents of the State of New York to incorporate as a historical society dedicated to helping preserve the house and educate the public about the legacy of John Hathorn and his home. Our incorporation should be official in mid October. As a project of Community 2000, we currently have not for profit status and can receive donations towards the emergency repairs the house will need before winter.
Orion Blake donated the funds necessary to have the initial structure report done by an architect, and that study has been done. The report will outline the initial repairs necessary ti stabilize the house and show further steps to be taken.
