Renovation Progress

There is MUCH more to do!

Your donation helps to keep the renovation project on track. 



Update: 12/04/2019

Now that the architect plans and drawings for the roof replacement are complete, SFHA has accepted a bid for replacement of the civic center building roof.


SFHA also has selected a Project Manager for the Roof Replacement phase of the renovation project.

As part of the roof replacement, the doors and windows will be replaced. 

Work will commence soon. Look for activity at the site on Chapel Hill Road in Spring Lake, NC. That means that we are making progress in our plan to renovate, restore and reopen the Historic Civic Center Building as the Sandhills Heritage Center.

Payment for the Architect was funded in part by a grant from the Terence L. Mills Fund for North and South Carolina of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Thank you NTHP!
