The Nause-Waiwash Band of Indians are proud to announce the installation of new windows in the long house. Yes! Progress in the works. The renovations are coming along. Thank you Richy Knox and Knox Builders. A job well done!
In 2014, newly elected Chief Wolf Mother set the goal to renovate the long house. We had electric run from the pole to the building. Thank you Choptank Electric. Then wiring was roughed-in inside the building. Thank you Gentle Bear. In 2018 our long house was added to the National Registry of Historic Landmarks. Thank you, Dr. Jeff Kirwin.
Although it would be impressive to restore the building to its original form, maintenance wise, it is not practical. In March of 2020 a new roof was installed. The cedar shakes were replaced with modern shingles. The original windows were in need of scraping, painting and glazing. They were replaced on April 29, 2022 with vinyl windows with minimal upkeep.
Next up, paint!
