Mason Wanted for Restoration Work

IMG00118We need your help in our search for a mason to restore the 2 “CCC” chimneys at Gibsonville and Big Bend (on the East side of the park).  As many of you are aware, we are starting the process of restoring and preserving 4 remnants from the “CCC” era in the park with 2 state grants we were awarded in 2013 and 2014: a lean-to, 2 chimneys, and stone picnic tables (east side of the park).

Bids were recently sent out to masons along with ads in area newspapers to no avail.  The one person who was interested is unable to work on the chimneys now. Friends of Letchworth State Park (FoLSP) is re-opening the bidding this week.  Deadline to submit bids is now Monday, June 27th at 3:00 pm (EST). If you know of anyone who may be interested in working on these chimneys (and possibly the stone picnic tables that will eventually follow), please contact (or have them contact) FoLSP at

Thank you in advance for your help!  The state gives us a 5 year window to have these projects completed from the time the grants are awarded.
