The Foundation was formed in 1995 to save and revitalize the Hegeler Carus Mansion.
Here are some photos to show how far we've come.

The Hegeler Carus Foundation is grateful to the Jeffris Heartland Fund, for a matching grant administered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The grant was used to hire architect John Eifler. Eifler and Associates prepared the Historic Structure Report for the Julius W. Hegeler I Home and are overseeing the exterior restoration projects that began in the summer of 2011.
In 2009, the home was added to the National Register of Historic Places, and the roof's restoration has been completed with the addition of a new slate roof.
