The board will be conducting an extensive exploration of saving these two properties and overseeing their proper preservation through our own volunteer labor efforts and a committee that is looking into adaptive reuse possibilities.

Good News for Preservation in Historic Bessemer!
The Stover-Wilson House, a ca. 1926 English Tudor on Clarendon Avenue that had fallen into extreme disrepair in recent times, has a bright future ahead! Negotiations for the purchase are reportedly settled and a complete preservation/reno project is being meticulously planned by member Wes Sims. We can't wait to see the coming progress! Thankfully he will be changing the red and returning it to a classic Tudor color scheme.
