Clean up work is continuing to the historic Lee Mansion on S. Washington in Saginaw, built by lumber baron Charles Lee in 1888.

Project Manager Alex Mixter says new flooring, a bathroom and a heating and air conditioning system still need to be installed before a unique multi-use community space can open. Mixter thanked everyone who’s contributed so far, either with money or time and talent.

Mixter spoke following a poetry contest attracted around 30 people to the house Thursday, December 12 with many making free will donations. He hopes the community space can open by early summer, especially if a crowdfunding campaign is successful.
