Port Angeles -- An historic landmark building, that now houses the Serenity Thrift Store, is getting a new roof.

The structure at the corner of First and Vine in Port Angeles was originally a Congregation Church built in 1888, making it one of the last remaining original nonresidential structures.

It was built as part of the Puget Sound Cooperative Colony that was the beginning of Port Angeles.

Serenity House's Brad Collins said that it was a necessity for the roof to be replaced.

The roofing project was funded mainly by Green Crow, Lighthouse Christian Center, Independent Bible and First Presbyterian churches. Other businesses also gave support. $7,000 of the project fund came from the Sally Garnero Memorial Fund. She was the thrift store founder.

Collins said the building is a piece of history, and needed to be in good condition.

The roofing project will be completed before the Heritage Days celebration at the Serenity House on September 14th. Collins said it is a celebration of the 125 years the building has been standing, and a celebration for the 125 years to come.
