We’re honored to announce a generous gift of $50,000 to the Jesup 2020 campaign from Jesup friends and supporters Emilie Murphy and Byron Nimocks of Bar Harbor and Rye, New York.

The gift will support the Jesup’s urgently needed Phase Two exterior preservation work. “As the Jesup is reimagined, reshaped and expanded for the future, we gave to both preserve the Jesup’s historic roots and help ensure its vital place in the Bar Harbor community continues,” said Murphy.

Their generous donation comes at a critical time for our historic building. The Jesup is counting on support from its friends and supporters now more than ever as we prepare the building to face another winter.

Phase Two of our campaign will require $1 million for exterior preservation work, including urgently needed drainage, façade and roof repairs to stop recurring winter water infiltration, and to prevent damage to the 1911 building. Less than $350,000 remains to be raised.
