RESTORATION & RENOVATION
The Concrete House is not just a building but a work of art created by folk artist and political activist Charles Macdonald. It is arguably the most unique heritage building in the Canadian Maritimes.
Presently the building is in great disrepair and if we don’t undertake a major restoration it will be lost forever.
The good news is that the board of directors is active and engaged. The Province and Federal Government are there to help us. We have secured Provincial and County funding to hire a heritage architect to develop a restoration plan. The Architects Plan will serve as a guide book on how to properly restore the Concrete House and preserve it for generations to come.
This is a huge undertaking for our volunteer board and we will need help from the entire community. Help by becoming a Member of the Charles Macdonald House of Centreville Society.
