The Trust grant helped fund the restoration of the building’s stucco and brick exterior, roof replacement, stabilization of the building and preservation of at least three rooms in the mansion, by salvaging mantels, plaster, paneling, stained glass, doors, hardware and ironwork. The work was part of a larger construction project that included a three-story addition and parking facility. The former mansion now houses the offices, reception and meeting rooms of the League, and additional space is rented for income.
