Andrew Mueller of Mueller Roofing was hard at work stripping shingles from the roof of the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau (old CN station) on Fourth Street this morning. The roof will be seeing much-needed upgrades over the next couple of weeks, including new shingles and some replacement of fascia, with care taken to preserve its historical value.
