SAVE  GROVE  TOWER  ASSOCIATION


Built by Henry County citizens in 1906 in response to an
endowment from philanthropist E.W. Grove, the Tower
Building served students for 73 years. It had been vacant
for four years when. in the fall of 1983, a group of in-
terested citizens met to organize a campaign to restore
the building to public service.
The outcome was the Save Grove Tower Association
plan to renovate the building for use as offices of Henry
County Board of Education. The project, to include initially
the first floor and basement with the second floor to
be attempted later, was estimated to cost $225,000.
A campaign for contributions met with enthusiastic
response.

Donations of labor and reduced-priced
materials greatly reduced the anticipated cost, and the
result is today's comfortable and well-equipped building,
ready to serve education needs in Henry County for
years to come.
Tax-deductible contributions may be made to Save
Grove Tower Association, P.O. Box 492, Paris, TN 38242.
