The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Redmen Hall painting complete


To The Eagle:

The painting of the Redmen Hall/1894 Central School is now complete and restored to its original color scheme.

The Friends of Skamokawa Board of Directors would like to acknowledge community members who donated coins and cash in our collection boxes, groups and private citizens who donated funds to paint for this historical gem.

Thank you to Ken Gomes Construction paint crew for outstanding paint work, Steve Puddicombe for building inspection, J&K Construction for building repairs, and Lucien Swerdloff of Clatsop Community College Historic Preservation Program who evaluated our building.

We are indebted to our talented grant writers Carol Carver and Jessica Schiek for obtaining grant funds from the Kinsman Foundation Historic Preservation Organization.

For the past few years with community help Friends of Skamokawa has been able to restore the bell tower, repair structural damage under the building, and add a new roof, and now a new coat of paint. This would not be possible were it not for a community who truly cares to preserve its history.

We invite you to visit River Life Interpretive Center @ Redmen Hall/Central School. Our summer exhibit is "Down on the Farm"- A History of the Skamokawa Creamery 1898-1943.

We are open Thursday- Sunday 12-4 p.m. We are located at 1394 West State Route 4, Skamokawa.

Pam Emery, Friends of Skamokawa
