The restoration of the historic façade of the Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials building at 120 South Madison Street in Pittsfield, Illinois is officially complete. We are excited to reopen the building for our services and the Reachout Thrift Store on Friday, March 1st, 2024. The organization will hold a grand reopening and ribbon cutting for the historic building in the near future so please watch for that. Our organization is excited to officially reintroduce the community to this gorgeous building and showcase the stunning improvements that have been made. The restoration project has captured the attention of many in the area and for good reason. After making structural improvements to the interior and exterior of the building, we officially closed the building in August of 2023 to begin the façade project. We are delighted to reopen this popular community center so that we can help meet the needs of the residents of Pike County.

We are amazed with the final result and hope the community is happy with it as well. Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials wants to thank the Pike County Board, Tracy Family Foundation, and Liberty Bank for their support and funding for the project. We also want to thank Petty Construction Company, Architechnics, and John Petty & Sons Custom Builders for the beautiful, finished product.

We look forward to our official reopening and ribbon cutting to formally celebrate our newly renovated building. We cannot wait to celebrate this milestone with you. Stay tuned for more details on the date and time so you can join us in person for this special occasion.

“We are thrilled to finally announce the long-awaited update that has been in the works for quite some time. We want to express our gratitude to the community and our dedicated staff for their patience and support throughout this process. We are excited to unveil a new building façade that truly embodies the values of Pittsfield and Pike County. Thank you for your continued support!” Jeremy Oshner, Executive Director.
