The roof on the original building, built in 1887 as Peninsula High School, also was slate, according to Peggy Jo Whitman, who serves with the Boston Township Hall Committee (BTHC) Inc.
Shown at right top, a roofer installs snow guards on the roof to keep snow and ice from falling onto lower levels. The building’s pyramid-shaped cupola is its tallest point.
The BTHC is a 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1992 as a means to help the township save the then-condemned building, said Whitman. Under a lease agreement with Boston Township, the BTHC has been fully responsible for the restoration, maintenance, operation and upkeep of the building, she added. The roof should be finished within the next couple of weeks, she said.
