Adopt-A-Window!

AdoptAWindowWTHM’s second building, the Dugan Mill, now needs sprucing up.

The Mill Museum would like to renovate/restore/repair these historic windows which are all in need of re-caulking, scraping, repainting, rope and weight replacement and in some case replacement of cracked glass.

Can you help us restore the 19 windows of the two floors of Dugan?
