Restoring an 80-Year-Old Community Center to its Original Glory
Location: Sublette, Illinois
The greatest challenge of this project was finishing the renovation in time for the town’s biggest event of the year—the Sublette Farm Toy and Antique Tractor Show.
In a town of 400 people, every neighbor is a friend, and every community event is a gathering of family. For decades, the Sublette Community Building has been the destination for events in the small town of Sublette, Illinois; the mixed-use building has seen countless weddings, parties, dances, plays and reunions. However, 80 years of celebrations have taken a toll on the space.
The community understood the dire need to repair the mixed-use building and rallied together to raise more than $200,000 to pay for the work. These funds will go directly to the renovation: a new entryway, new bathrooms, a handicap-accessible ramp, and new floors and walls are among the planned repairs.
