Helen Harris Arnold Pavilion
We are proud to present the progress on the pavilion expansion project (Gerald Atha Construction Co.) at the William Harris Homestead property. Through a very generous donation from the Harry Arnold Family, construction is underway for handicapped-accessible restrooms, a guest services office and storage, and an expanded and improved pavilion area for meetings, workshops, heritage education and events.
Helen Harris Arnold was a great-granddaughter of William and Harriet Harris and was proud of and devoted to family history, including cousins and genealogy. In her memory and to honor Helen, her husband, Harry, and her daughters, Susan A. Borrelli, Harriet A Rosa, and Sarah A. Goodiss generously contributed much of the funding for this building, making this construction project a reality. The Trustees of the William Harris Homestead Foundation are grateful and appreciative of this gift, which will provide activity space for heritage education and accessibility for those with disabilities. The Helen Harris Arnold Pavilion expansion should be completed in April.
