Perrot's Cupola: Under Construction

Restorations are underway on Perrot's historic cupola, which has served as a beacon to our community for over 80 years.

The cupola restoration includes eight new 9-foot-tall windows, a copper roof, a stainless steel finial for the weather vane, a new frame and door to the exterior roof, replacement of rotted sills and trim boards under the windows, new roofing material around the base of the cupola, and fresh paint for the exterior.

See some photos of the work that is underway on Perrot's Facebook page.

The project is expected to take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.
