The Hoover School Renovation Project

The renovation project of the Hoover School started in November 2006 and was completed in the spring of 2009.

Tom and Dawn Brozonis, owners of the Hoover School, have made this project possible by leasing the school to the Clifford Township Historical Society for twenty five years.

The renovation project took a huge leap when volunteers ripped the old metal roofing and wood shingles from the school building. A dedicated crew of carpenters and helpers, sistered the rafters and replaced trim and fascia boards. A plywood roof was prepared for the installation of a metal roof. In keeping with the original look of the building, the new roof is a “wood shakes” style. Volunteers also cleaned up the grounds and school interior. The next step was painting the exterior of the building.

Many community volunteers have worked countless hours to bring the building back to life. Their commitment and time is priceless for without them the project could not be completed.
