FoEG will take the necessary steps to stabilize and weatherize the structure. The roof and foundation need attention. Inside, there are gaps in the flooring and the windows need to be sealed and protected.
FoEG plans to reach out to the community for input on how a preserved Toll House can best serve the community. If necessary, the site-specific building may be shifted off the road to ensure its safety and preservation.
The ultimate goal is to restore the East Gate Toll House and develop the site into something self-sustaining and productive. FoEG is committed to working with its advisors and the community to develop a master plan that will determine eventual use.
