November 2017 - FORMA's effort to protect the "Old Brewhouse" makes the news King 5 News in Seattle recently chronicled volunteer efforts to protect Tumwater's landmark 1906 Brewhouse building - original home of The Olympia Brewing Company - which has been sitting mostly empty for decades and steadily falling into disrepair. The City of Tumwater has embarked on a phased plan to restore and remodel the landmark building, but with funding not yet in place, the first priority is simply to protect the structure from further damage. Led by FORMA, a team of local volunteers and community businesses have collaborated over the last several weeks to donate time & materials and erect temporary support walls and roofs -here's what it looked like. You can learn more about our preservation efforts here at the City's site, and in this recent Olympian article. Stay tuned for updates and ways you can get involved to support the restoration of this community landmark.
