HARVEYSBURG, Ohio (FOX19) – The historic first free black school in Harveysburg, Ohio is getting a much-needed roof replacement courtesy of two local businesses.
Feazel in Loveland and ABC Supply in Sharonville have partnered to replace the roof on the 1831 schoolhouse at no cost to the historical society.
FOX19 NOW reported in February the Harveysburg Historical Society’s concerns about the decaying roof and the damage the building was susceptible to because of those roof issues.
Fast-growing Feazel Roofing Co. will move from Westerville to New Albany, where it wants to build its new headquarters.
Owner Leo Ruberto told me the company will build a 24,500-square-foot building off Walton Parkway, just east of New Albany-Condit Road at the bridge over Rt. 161, which will serve as a new headquarters for the company as it continues its growth.
Feazel is experiencing exponential growth despite a tight labor market.
