FRIENDS OF THE KIT JONES WELCOMES YOU

100% of your donations go towards this restoration project!

We have no administrative overhead ~ we're all volunteers!

Grassroots preservation is empty pocketbooks, bloody fingers, and private satisfactions. It is long hours, hard work, and no pay. It is a personal dialogue with ghosts. It is a face-to-face confrontation with the past... It is an equation between self and history so powerful that it makes us lie down in front of bulldozers, raise toppled statues, salvage old boats.
