Clean up work is continuing to the historic Lee Mansion on South Washington in Saginaw built by lumber baron Charles Lee in 1888.

Project Manager Alex Mixter says new flooring, a bathroom and a heating and air conditioning system still need to be installed before a unique multi use community space can open. Mixter thanked everyone who’s contributed so far either with money or time and talent.

He  spoke after a poetry contest attracted some 30 people to the house Thursday with many making free will donations. Mixter hopes the community space can open by early summer, especially if a Crowdfunding campaign is successful.
