This Thursday, Rutland’s newest venture — The Old Parsonage, LLC — has a ‘soft opening’ from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Kathleen Brakke, Sue Anderson, and MaryAnn Thornberg, have been busy for several months sprucing up the old Baptist Church parsonage at 217 -1st Street. Remodeling inside and out has been extensive and the project is truly an outstanding asset to the community. A new porch, roofing and siding has rejuvenated the building for its new purpose. The store features home decor, unique gifts, furniture, repurposed treasures, antiques & collectibles. If you know the quality of materials that the three entrepreneurs create, you know there will be an abundance of unique and creative items to choose from.
Starting tomorrow, The Old Parsonage will be open the second weekend of each month with hours Thursday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, Noon to 3:00 p.m. and other times by appointment. Come and explore the new store and then venture over to the Rutland General Store for a light snack, coffee or dinner.
The Parsonage is also seeking photographs of individuals who were married in the old Baptist Parsonage so please let Kathleen or Susan know if you have a photo to contribute. Feel free to leave a comment and they will get your information!
