The final beam of the Carriage House, signed by many who were involved in getting the structure to where it is today, was hoisted into the air by a crane. Majestically perched atop the beam were an evergreen tree and an American flag.

If you drove down Pearl Street on February 9th, you would have seen quite a spectacle. On one side of the road, 40 people stood with glasses of sparkling cider in hand, looking toward the sky and cheering with tears in their eyes. Across the street, the final beam of the Carriage House, signed by many who were involved in getting the structure to where it is today, was being hoisted into the air by a crane. Majestically perched atop the beam were an evergreen tree and an American flag.
