I'm asking anyone who cares about cool buildings or art deco to vote for our Cottage Grove Armory building. It is in a contest to win 25,000.00 that will be granted to the site with the most votes. It is truly an amazing building built in the early 1900's . You can see pics and read about it . Please go to < cottagegrove.org> and find out how to vote. We are going up on the polls and need to get to the top . This is a national contest.This building was bought by the city at a very low price with , I believe a no interest loan with payments to start in 2 yrs. Nice deal and it is an ideal , awesome building for the community once it gets renovated. I've taken a tour of it and from a painters view...... no water damage, no mold or dry rot......LOTS of natural light and huge windows, Maple floors. Beautiful ! Not to mention what the outside can look like when all the art deco features are highlighted once again as I'm sure they were in the 20's .
