We went to bids two times in 2014 and both times bids had to be rejected because of unavailable funds and excess over estimated costs. In December 2014 MoDOT gave an additional grant and now we are in the process of raising our second group of matching funds. As of this date, we need approximately $15,000 in order to go to bid at the end of February 2015. Contributions are still needed to pay notes and other expenses — please keep them coming. Federal/State are willing to invest in the future of Poplar Bluff in restoring this landmark. We, the citizens of Butler County need to step up and do our part — keep the contributions coming — PO Box 33, Poplar Bluff, MO. 63902. Checks can be made payable to PBHDRC or you may pay through Paypal. Questions can be addressed on Facebook – Poplar Bluff Historic Depot Restoration Corporation.
