Stonemason repairs wear and tear on theater’s facade

Starting this morning — weather permitting — stonemason Alan Ash will be back on the scaffolding at the Whiteside Theatre in Corvallis, fixing the wear caused by rain, freezing and thawing that has affected the building since it opened in 1922.

He’ll be repairing a piece of cornice that fell onto the 1950s marquee, among other chores.

Ash’s work is the most recent evidence of a vigorous fundraising and grant-writing campaign that has allowed the theater’s foundation to cross off many to-do items off its list of must-fix projects before the theater can be fully reopened to the public.

    Great bit of news about a remarkably well preserved theatre.
