Our Projects.  

Below are three of the projects that will take place as soon as funding is secured and work can begin. An estimated cost is provided for each project, highlighting the magnitude and the amount of assistance required through grants, donations, in-kind work, and volunteer work necessary for the restoration to be complete and the Old Sweet revived.


Project 3 Warm Water Pool House

The water at the pool remains a constant 73 degrees year round.  This wonderful historic pool is the beginning of the Sweet Springs history.  We need volunteers to help clean the area around the pool in preparation to begin stabilization of the building so restoration can begin.  Total cost for this restoration is approx. $100,000.00
