One of the things we wanted to do with our winnings from The Amazing Race was to invest in the growth and preservation of Sharon Springs’ Main Street. So when the Village Hall Gallery recently came up for sale, we saw it as the perfect opportunity to expand the Beekman 1802 Mercantile and headquarters.
We were lucky that the previous owner, our friends Leila and Philip Durkin, had already done such a fantastic job restoring the property – even winning a preservation award for their efforts. We will make some further changes to bring the building back even closer in looks to one of its earliest incarnations.
We’ll post updates frequently as work progresses, and will share some “How-To’s” for our design ideas as we go along. We plan on having a Grand Opening by this year’s Sharon Springs Garden Party (June 1 & 2) and hope to see you then!
For now, here are some “before” pictures:
