The Alabama Hiking Trail Society River Region is raising money to fund the restoration project for the cabins at Flagg Mountain and the stairs and windows within the tower. The cost for the stairs alone in the tower is $19,000. Our current project is the cabin restoration because they have incurred the most damage that needs to be repaired before more damage happens. One of the cabins will actually be the host cabin for the caretaker that will be watching over the area. The total of $15,000 is just an estimate to fully restore one cabin, and we have successfully been able to restore power to the cabins and we have removed the lead paint so we are in the process of bonding the lead paint. The windows alone will be roughly $2,000 for the host cabin and that does not count any cost that may incur when we start the framing. There is some structural damage to the cabin so the cabin will be in need of foundation correction as well. The Alabama Hiking Trail Society is donating all the labor but we need your help with the materials to continue this work. Every donation will help even it's only $5.00.
