MORE CHANGES!! The Rainier Historical Society has been in the process of restoring the 1915 Rainier historic school for public use for the past ten years and a lot has happened.
Due to a decrease in donations and sales we have returned the historic school back to the school district. It is becoming the new district office.
We will still be able to assemble and maintain the historic museum part that we have never had the time to work on.
As for closing down the thrift store and the library we were disappointed to have to do this as we will miss seeing our faithful customers and serving our community in this way finances were just to low to continue.
The school district is excited and we are excited about the plans they have for the building. It is a good feeling to know that we have saved a piece of Rainier history that was about to be demolished in 1996-97 and it will be well used again.
Full restoration is being finished then there will be a celebration. Keep watching for updates.
