The Campaign to Save Liberty Hall is now working closely with the project architect, John Turk, to draw up plans for the interior restoration of the building. 

The work of Phase Three will be divided into two stages:
 
A prestigious grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation has enabled the architect to draft a site plan and design for a septic system.  He is also providing provisional sketches of the building interior that include the proposed location of an elevator, community kitchen, ADA bathroom, meeting rooms and library.    
 
In preparing the architectural design for Phase Three, John Turk will collaborate with the staff of Earle Shettleworth in the office of Maine Historic Preservation Commission to ensure that the original features of Andrew Gilson’s building are properly preserved.  This will involve the restoration wherever possible of the original decorative plaster and woodwork.  Where repair is not possible, replica details will be manufactured and integrated into the building.   
 
The major tasks comprising the work of Phase Three include:
