FLM Carriage House Project Update

Thanks to generous grants from the Georgia B. Lucas Foundation Fund of the Austin Community Foundation and the Native Texas License Plate Funds, the French Legation Museum's Carriage House Visitors' Center has received much-needed help.

The old cedar roof was removed, new shakes were installed, corrosive metals were replaced with more historically accurate materials, and the exterior stairs have been repaired with new appropriate column supports. Next week the painters will beautify those wonderful new steps and the project will be complete.

These long-awaited projects could not have been realized without grant funding. The French Legation Museum is grateful to both granting agencies for their generosity in making these grant funds available to historic sites like the French Legation Museum.
