The DDA purchased the “Old Sopscak Building” in 2011 for $26,000. This building had a historical value but was great disrepair. The DDA considered demolishing this as part of the railroad parking plan. After a public outcry to save it, the DDA entered into an agreement with the Railroad Club in Roscommon to renovate the building and turn it into a public museum. The DDA spent an additional $63,000 on the building with the club supplying the labor for the renovations. A rental agreement is currently in place with the club having an option to purchase. The rent agreement is scheduled to end in 2014. It is the DDA’s intent sell the property when the lease agreement ends and reinvest the money into the community.
