We have moved!

The offices of BCPEF have a new home! We’ve been invited to occupy the 2nd story of the Cleveland Bradley County Public Library’s building at 833 North Ocoee Street. The beautiful Italianate house was donated by the Johnston Family to the city of Cleveland in 1926 in memory of Sarah Tucker Johnston who had died two years earlier. A new name will grace this structure—The Johnston-Tucker Center.

The Library’s historical archives are located on the first floor. This new BCPEF office complex will wonderfully serve our educational public. With a conference room, offices, reception area and catering kitchen, hosting meetings and receptions will be a pleasure. See the pictures below to appreciate this marvelous gift!

Numerous donors have made this possible. The Tucker Foundation made the initial proposal to the Library, wanting to renovate and restore this second floor of the building. Other donors caught the vision and generously supported the year-long process with financial contributions to the Library’s Foundation. Please see the list below noting these community-minded folk. Members of the BCPEF Executive Committee have contributed furnishings and art, making this space most hospitable and functional.

Gratitude is due the contractor, Dwight Jenkins, and the architect, Randy Cagle, Franklin Architects, and their teams for the incredible renovation and restoration plan and execution of the design. 

Please stop and visit us. Call or e-mail if you wish to schedule a meeting.  We are so grateful for the ability to expand our services to our extended educational and community family.
