Fund Our Fence Campaign
If you've ever been to Decker Park in downtown Richmond, it's easy to see the potential for such a historic space. Photographers love the textures and characters of the historic buildings on the property, and the green grass and shady trees -- and its proximity to the City of Richmond's Wessendorff Park -- provide a perfect backdrop for an outdoor festival, wedding or other gathering.
"We have a true treasure with the historic nature of Richmond that dates back to the Republic," said Keely Knipling, Secretary for the Fort Bend County Museum Association's Board of Trustees. "We want to do the best we can to make Richmond, our county seat, special, while still holding on to our past as a quaint, history-rich small town."
This history-minded vision for enhancing the historic downtown space starts with a new fence. The current chain-link fence surrounding Decker Park is rusty, broken and, quite simply, an eyesore. With the completion of this project, charming white cedar pickets will replace the chain-link fence, giving a remarkable facelift to the area and driving home the nostalgia and simplicity of the past.
At the Lone Star Stomp on April 8, you kicked off the fundraising campaign for the new fence and raised $9,000. We're a third of the way there!
