New Wheelchair Ramp Installed at Entrance to Loom Room

reprinted from the November, 2011 edition of the Courier newsletter

Project Completed by Manchester Eagle Scout

Chris Kopytko of Manchester Boy Scout Troop 25 recently constructed a wheelchair ramp at the entrance to the Loom Room on the ground floor of the History Center building for his Eagle Scout project. He also rebuilt the stairway leading to the rear door of the Loom Room.

Chris, working with several other scouts designed the project and obtained the required materials.

The exterior ramp and platform are constructed of pressure treated wood, for longevity. This makes the Loom Room wheelchair accessible for visitors, who previously had to enter through the inconvenient double doors at the large canopy.
