An informational session about the historic Blue Sulphur Spring Pavilion will be held on Monday, April 14, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.at The Spring (formerly known as Fort Savannah) in Lewisburg. The Mills Group will present their findings about its history, some of which may surprise local residents, and an overview of the needs for stabilization and restoration.

The Historic Structures Report prepared by the Mills Group was made possible through the support of the Greenbrier County Historic Landmarks Commission and funding from the Greenbrier County Commission and a Survey and Planning Grant from the State Historic Preservation Office.

Under the immediate direction of the Friends of the Blue, a committee of the Greenbrier Historical Society, this report will form the basis for future work to preserve the pavilion and much work is needed.

The Greenbrier Historical Society recently received a small grant from the State Historic Preservation Office and was able to match it with some funds from the Daywood Foundation and individual donors to start emergency stabilization. Hopefully that work will begin in the next few weeks.

Alex McLaughlin, Chair of the Friends of the Blue, said, “This is an incredible structure with huge support and huge needs. Please come and learn more about this project and how you can help.”
