 John & Peggy Whited


John and Peggy Whited purchased the Cumberland High/Elementary School in January 2006. At that time the building had been vacant for three years, vandalized and all but forgotten. A leaking roof had destroyed most of the buildings drop ceilings and damaged a fair portion of the hard wood floors. Structurally the building was solid and therefore salvageable.

The first order of business was to repair the roof. Once roof was completed, with the help of many volunteers, the clean up began. It took over six months to haul away the garbage left by previous owners and the debris from the leaky roof.

Just seven months after John and Peggy purchased the building, they held a huge Halloween Party to christen the building. Still a long way from completion, but the building was usable. Laughter and music could be heard echoing thru the halls once again.

The following year in September they held their first wedding reception for their son John and his bride Heather. Since then numerous parties have and events have taken place and the community reaction has been extremely positive.

In May 2008 John and Peggy invited the Alumni Association to hold their Annual Banquet in the school building. It had been many years since the banquet had been held in the building and the committee members agreed to return. The Alumni Committee also allowed the original trophy case and class pictures to be returned to the building. The banquet saw a record number in attendance and a good time was had by all.

Their hope is to offer the local community a place to hold parties, meetings and even get a little exercise. Eventually they would like to have monthly rummage sales and/or auctions. Also, they’d love to start a community theatre group and they plan to open a local history museum within a few a years.
