VAN BUREN, Mo. – The much-anticipated restoration of the historic Big Spring dining lodge and cabins is expected to begin soon at Ozark National Scenic Riverways.
The contract for the rehabilitation project was awarded to Blinderman Construction, Inc., from Chicago, on April 6.
Project managers have already been on-site to evaluate the structures, scout the local area, and begin development of the project schedule.
This project will rehabilitate historic structures within the Big Spring Historic District, including the park’s dining lodge, cabins, and former museum building.
The work includes removal of non-historic finishes; repair or replacement of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems; interior and exterior renovation; abatement of hazardous materials; and installation of fire suppression systems.
