Recapturing a piece of old Block Island

May 31, 2013

A fundraiser is on tap this weekend to raise funds to reconstruct the old Spring Street pumphouse, which was raized last year.

The event will be held at the Spring House Hotel on Sunday, June 2, from 3 – 5 p.m. According to Sharon Lehman, a member of Scenic Block Island, the group spearheading the effort, the overall goal is to raise $75,000 for the new building. The structure will replicate the original design, which housed the pump that brought water to the guests staying at the Spring House.
