First Round of Renovations Completed at
Union Hall Theater
grant from the State of Ohio to the Village of Chesterhill paid for the
replacement of all of the windows, exterior doors and damaged tin
ceiling tiles in the theater. Heating and cooling of the theater will be
much more efficient due to the new windows and doors.
Although these upgrades represent a
big step forward in the revival of this 100-year-old theater, donít
expect the place to look brand spanking new yet. The volunteers who
operate the theater now need to raise a similar amount of money to have
it painted and get new lighting.
The funds were appropriated in 2008 by
the 127th General Assembly of the State of Ohio and administered by the
Ohio Cultural Facilities Commission. Jimmy Stewart, State Representative
at that time, was instrumental in convincing the Assembly to consider
this allocation of funds. The construction work was completed by Flecto
LLC of Norwich, Ohio after a competitive bidding process.
