THE RURAL RETREAT DEPOT FOUNDATION
The mission of the Rural Retreat Depot Foundation is to:
     1.  Acquire  (Get it)
         2.  Restore  (Fix it)
              3.  Manage  (Put it to good use)
                    to preserve the culture of the region.
The Rural Retreat Depot Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit formed in 2011.  At that time the Rural Retreat Depot was privately owned and was in a state of serious decline.  Within the first year the Foundation raised $90,000 to purchase the Depot, fulfilling Phase 1 of our mission.  Now, Phases 2 and 3 are well underway as you will see on these pages.
