The banner is up on the side of the white Hearse House, near the Public Tomb on Main Street in Chester, signaling that Chester Townscape is now appealing to the public for funds to finish the restoration and enhancement of the Hearse House. Contributions from some supporters and from members of the Chester Townscape Committee of the Chester Community Alliance, Inc., a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization, have brought restoration efforts to a very important point. So it's time to make that progress public - because the progress made is much more than meets the eye!
