The Wood County District Public Library announces an open house for the newly renovated Carter House at 307 N Church St. on Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
In 2006, Robert and Patricia Maurer and their family donated the house to WCDPL for use by the library for programming and meeting space and for use in other ways to benefit the community. The house has been named honor of Robert Maurer's aunt, Martha Maurer Carter, who taught school for 35 years in Bowling Green and Toledo.
Saturday's open house follows an extensive renovation, which, while not an historic restoration, honors the Carter House's history. Much of the original woodwork has been restored on the first floor of the house. Choices for interior paint colors and plants used in landscaping reflect Victorian tastes.
Almost immediately following the open house, the library will begin to use first floor of the Carter House for library programming. The first floor will become available for use by community groups and private individuals in the fall.
