We need your help to fund the cost of restoring water service to the Historic Dumas Brothel! As most of you know, we have achieved significant progress on the preservation and restoration of the Dumas since we acquired it in June 2012... In February of 2013, we paid nearly $6,000 dollars in delinquent property taxes insuring that the Dumas will never be demolished!! For the first time since the 1980's, the property taxes are current! Additionally, we paid to have natural gas service restored to the building after 12 years, and also had the old furnace repaired in order to heat the building in the winter months so we can work on the restorations year round. We have removed nearly 4 tons of debris from the interior of the Dumas! Recently, we painted the large Madam's suite upstairs with the help of volunteers, and are in the process of replacing (5) of the broken/missing sky-light glass panes! We are now scrimping and saving in order to pay to have the water utility service restored to the Dumas. For this to be accomplished we must pay to have Mercury street dug up and the water main to the building replaced and re-connected. Once this is done, the Dumas will again have running water and a working restroom after 13 years without water service! With your donation we can achieve this by summer's end! Even the smallest contribution will make a huge impact and together we can do this! Thank you for your support!
