Here's a glimpse of the old windows coming out of the front of the Tremont House and how it looks now with the new windows and doors installed.  What a difference!

The old front windows of the Tremont House are now being removed to showcase the restored building front with it's new windows and doors. Bob Wagner (left - white jacket) and Paul Wolfe (right - green shirt) are placing their hands on the glass windows they were instrumental in installing many many years ago which is now being removed during the restoration process.

 

 

 

NEW FRONT DOOR INSTALLED
The door, sidelights, and transom for the new front of the Tremont House have been delivered and installed.  The door, custom made to be period correct, has a modern advantage:  one sidelight is hinged so it can be opened to allow larger objects to be moved in and out of the building. Saturday’s installation was done by Wilhelm Construction and museum volunteers. A generous grant from the Sandusky County Communities Foundation covered the cost of the door, sidelights and transom.  Installation costs were covered by an anonymous donor.  

Part of Phase I of the Tremont House Project, the Society is working to reclaim and restore the building which anchors our downtown.   The Tremont House is downtown Bellevue’s only building listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Due to the great support of the strength of steel the Tremont House will stand 100 more years.
Thanks to Thomas Steel for their support in many ways. The knowledge and experience that the company has shown and given to the Bellevue Historical Society for the Tremont House Restoration Project is above and beyond. GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thank You.
