The first fundraising campaign to start the restoration of the Old Zebulon School raised more than the original $100,000 goal.
“Our community raised nearly $130,000 to begin the renovation of this grand old lady,” said OZS committee member Anna Evans. “Once finished, it will serve as a nexus for the arts, business and civic uses. The most amazing thing was the spirit that suffused the three month campaign - it was truly inspiring.”
Thanks to donations from community members, the Old Zebulon School will soon receive a new roof and then work will begin on replacing windows and completing exterior upgrades to make the building usable again by members of the community.
