Auction Fundraiser at Southern Acres a huge success! More to come …



On the heels of an incredibly successful Bath High School Centennial celebration, Bath High School Preservation is working to secure bids to begin the renovations of the additional 4100 square foot space over the library to expand space for existing tenants and future offices for professional or medical/dental services.


Auditorium Renovation

Next up is renovation of the Auditorium for concerts, theatre, film and private events. After that, renovation of the floor above the Auditorium will provide additional space for offices or other use cases.


You can help in many ways!
