Supporting the Rising Sun Inn from the Comfort of your Home!
Online fundraisers are an easy way to the support the ongoing preservation and restoration projects at the historic Rising Sun Inn without leaving your home. You know how much love and care historic buildings need. We continue to work on several projects.
In 2020 - 2021, we plan to continue to work on the restoration of the the Carriage House exterior and hope to begin the interior restoration. For the Rising Sun Inn, we are embarking on additional restorations on the Inn's interior. The work is never finished when you're responsible for an historic property. Our long range planning includes raising funds to update the HVAC system and replacement of the Inn's cedar roof shingles.
UWith your generous help, we have made great progress with the Rising Sun In and Carriage House exterior restoration. In the past four years, we have have repaired foundation; replaced the roof; repainted the exterior, and most recently, reglazed the Carriage House windows. The Inn itself has gotten a major facelift as well. That face lift included replacing the cedar ridge shingles, repainting the exterior; reglazing the windows, and repairing the wood rot on the front porch. Lastly, not to be forgotten, we installed a beautiful Colonial Heritage Pollinator Garden.
These efforts could not have been accomplished without the generosity of supporters and volunteers including the members of Ann Arundel Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, the Maryland State Society Children of the American Revolution and CityServe. We have also been fortunate to benefit from several grants including: National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, Maryland State Society Daughters of the American Revolution, Maryland State Society Children of the American Revolution, Unity Gardens, and CityServe. While there is still much work to be accomplished, completing these projects are major benchmark in our restoration efforts. Thank you!
