Help restore the Michigan River Guard Station
The U.S. Forest Service is seeking volunteers to help with the restoration of the Michigan River Guard Station, located near the town of Gould, for the week of July 7-11. Rehabilitation work is needed on the log house, which was built in 1914. It includes repairing the roof, floor, windows, door and brick chimney; replacing sill logs; installing gutters; upgrading the bathroom; improving drainage; and painting the interior. Dr. Harrison Goodall, an architectural historian, will lead the project.
The Forest Service plans to use the station for nightly rentals to the public once restoration work is complete. Interested volunteers should call Joanne Sanfilippo at 870-2210.
