Work at the historic Carter House in Bowling Green is nearing completion.
At this month's Wood County District Public Library Board meeting, Director Michael Penrod announced that renovations at the circa-1877 home are 75-percent complete. He said that the walls are being painted and landscaping work is upcoming.
The $148,000 renovation was approved in January, a final burst of work in order to get the site open to the public. Nearly $130,000 had already been spent.
It is anticipated that all work on the home will be finished early this summer.
The Carter House is located across Church Street from the library and was a gift from Robert and Patricia Maurer. It has been called the Carter House in honor of Maurer's aunt, Martha Carter, an educator who strongly believed in libraries.
