The Friends of Eliestoun is a non-profit group whose sole purpose is the revitalization of Eliestoun. Their objective is to preserve as much of the historic features as possible while returning the building to active use with a self-sustaining program.
The first step in this process was detailed documentation of the three story house and its immediate grounds. Next, meetings with the Friends of Eliestoun and other concerned parties defined and refined the performance criteria and the highest and best use.
Finally, from these criteria came a clear program and cost estimate for phased construction. With these information tools, Friends of Eliestoun is moving forward with fundraising efforts to finance this laudable renovation.
