the Alley! Brick by Brick - Paving the Stowe Street Alley
Help transform the Stowe Street Alley with your donation of an engraved brick!
The Stowe Street Alley Project, also known as Jack’s Alley, will reclaim and makeover an alley that is central to our historic downtown district creating a lively, public space that is attractive and engaging for the community. Jack Carter, the original owner of the Stowe Street Emporium at 23 Stowe Street, was passionate about reclaiming the Stowe Street Alley and had dreamt about it for over 20 years. He was a key member of the planning committee until he died unexpectedly in June 2021.
Project has three phases:
1. Installation of a
new surface made from pavers and bricks, creating space for art demonstrations
and performances, an in-ground garden bed, a structure over the cellar stairway
to 23 Stowe Street and screening for the utilities.
2. Functional and artistic streetscape features such as benches, trash/recycling, security assets, and additional landscaping.
3. Integrated art components, including lighting and an entranceway.
Phase One will be
completed in 2022 - with the help of donors such as you!
