Repairing the stage floor

Victor Guerrero and Daniel Fernandez start work on the flooring of the auditorium stage at the Chappell Hill Historical Society Museum Tuesday morning. Funding for the project was made possible by grants including matching grants from the Albert and Ethel Herzstein Charitable Foundation and the Bob and Cathleen Davis Foundation. This is part of an ongoing project to restore the auditorium.

The Chappell Hill Historical Society Museum is getting ready for the busy Fourth of July Cowboy Roundup event as well as restoring its auditorium.

In the past three years, attendance during the Fourth of July Cowboy Roundup event has increased, according to Christine Hoffman, director at the museum.

Setting up the photo op

The green screen will allow people to take photos and — after submitting them to an email address — put them in a photo of 1900s downtown Chappell Hill.
