Pictured below is President of the Foundation Kaylon Roberts signing the deed to the building that has become the home for the new Foundation Historical/Visitiors Center. Kaylon and the Roberts children donated this building to the Foundation in memory of their parents, Cotton and Rita Roberts.
The Foundation members and volunteers will have a place to work, gather and display historical information, pictures and artifacts. We will encourage our members to provide valuable pieces of Damar's history that they might have, so we can share them with all our members, friends and visitors. Since there will be no paid employees we will rely heavily on volunteers to staff the Visitors center on certain days and especially on key days of the year, special days such as weddings, funerals, holidays.
Pictured above is the ribbon cutting and dedication of the new foundation building celebrated on October 25th, 2014. The building will be known as the Damar "French Quarter" Visitors Center.
The above picture is the finished display room after the Newell annex to the French Quarters Visitors building was totally remodeled. The two buildings were connected and a new restroom and kitchenette were added to the buildings as well.
