The Hoover School Renovation Project
The renovation project of the Hoover School started in November 2006 and was completed
in the spring of 2009.
Tom and Dawn Brozonis, owners of the Hoover School, have made this project possible by leasing
the school to the Clifford Township Historical Society for twenty five years.
The renovation project took a huge leap when volunteers ripped the old metal roofing and wood
shingles from the school building. A dedicated crew of carpenters and helpers, sistered the rafters
and replaced trim and fascia boards. A plywood roof was prepared for the installation of a metal
roof. In keeping with the original look of the building, the new roof is a "wood shakes"
style. Volunteers also cleaned up the grounds and school interior. The next step was painting the
exterior of the building.
Many community volunteers have worked countless hours to bring the building back to life. Their
commitment and time is priceless for without them the project could not be completed.
This project is funded in part with assistance from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and
Natural Resources Bureau of Recreation and Conservation. A Pennsylvania Heritage Areas Program grant
is being provided to the Clifford Township Historical Society by the Endless Mountains Heritage Region,
