This ongoing project is to transform a historic, 3,800 square foot parsonage into an early-childhood learning center and community hub. Located in Newburgh’s East End Historic District adjacent to city-owned Audrey Carey Park, the project aims to catalyze the neighborhood by providing much-needed child care and after-school programs, a community garden, and youth work-training opportunities. The 2.5-story brick building has been vacant for over 15 years and is in a state of disrepair. It is a historic building, and we are preserving all of the character-defining features, including the ground-level room arrangements, the main stair, and the slate roof. The west wing of the building was renovated in the 1960s, and so we are fitting new, core building elements here, including an ADA-accessible entrance, kitchen, bathrooms, and stairs.
