Water damage at the Northfield Historical Society

Yesterday morning, workers began removing the peaked roof at the Northfield Historical Society. This morning's 6 am rainfall found its way into many areas of the Scriver building, despite the tarp placed on the roof overnight.
Rob Schanilec, NHS board president (pictured above), gave me a tour of the building at about 7:00 am. Water damaged at least one of the new ceilings in the recently restored museum area. The museum store and basement collections areas were spared, despite falling ceiling tiles. Amid the many buckets and baskets collecting the dripping water, Servicemaster was doing the immediate cleanup. Click the photos for larger views.
