Great funding effort by CCMHT to save Weidlinger House. CurbedCapeCod’d great story below. (With an update)
Curbed Cape Cod Update: The Cape Cod Modern House Trust’s (CCMHT) Kickstarter campaign to save Wellfleet’s Weidlinger House by raising $50,000 towards the much-needed restoration ends tomorrow. So far, they’ve raised $59,249, making the crowdfunding venture a success. However, the iconic mid-century building is such a hot mess that the CCMHT is naturally hoping to raise as much funding possible. Just in time, a donor has stepped up and offered a $5K match if the campaign reaches $60,000 by Saturday. All the details, this way. [previously; Kickstarter]

The Cape Cod Modern House Trust has hit the crowdfunding circuit to save the Weidlinger House. Built in 1953, the iconic structure will soon be listed on the National Registry, but is in urgent need of restoration. Per the Kickstarter campaign:
Due to a lack of resources from the Park Service, this irreplaceable piece of our cultural heritage ended up abandoned and slated for demolition in the pristine landscape of the Cape Cod National Seashore. The Cape Cod Modern House Trust (CCMHT) has obtained a lease and begun a full restoration, which we hope to finish, with your help, by July, 2014. This Kickstarter campaign is to raise $50,000 toward that goal.
So far, the Cape Cod Modern House Trust has raised $40,443 of their $50,000 goal. Donations, this way.
