Fence to Be Restored

by Gates Historical Society Board member, Cindy Hinchey

Greetings to all! We at the Gates Historical Society are very excited to announce our plan for replacing the white fence on the Hinchey Homestead property. The approximate cost is $15,000 and we have about one-third of the funds at this point. So many town residents have asked, "when are you going to fix the fence?" Now we will if you can help us. A new fence will make a huge difference in the appearance of the Homestead and the entire surrounding area. We are ready to get started!

We have a contractor and he is ready to go. Please consider a donation for this improvement of the only home in Gates listed on the Federal Register of Historic Sites! We look forward to continuing to make Gates aware of its rich history. A town proud of its history and eager to showcase its history to the world! We know you will be as excited as we are when you see the construction begin. Please consider a donation now to the

Gates Historical Society – Fence Project.

You can be assured that every cent will be going for that purpose. We appreciate all the concerns the town and its residents have shown in the past including the donations for the upkeep of the property.

The Gates Historical Society works constantly to do its part to conserve this beautiful property and protect its rich history for future generations. Send your check to:
