RED BLUFF, Calif. - The Kelly-Griggs House Museum is closed for restoration work and their annual Ice Cream Social has been canceled.

Lizabeth Forsberg, a board of director, said the Victorian style home built in the late 1800'sneeded some work done on the south side.

However, they realized the foundation also had to be fixed before exterior restoration was done.

Through community donations and a $50,000 grant from the McConnell Foundation the restoration is now possible, Forsberg explained.

"The foundation just started two weeks ago, it's already completely done. We are just waiting for the new windows to come in and we are waiting for the siding to come in, because we are dealing with a 128-year-old home the siding was kind of hard to find, but good news is we found it," she explained.

The rest of the work is expected to start in early September and then once the work is completed they expect to have a grand reopening.
