The Bain auditorium is still slated for demolition, but Mint Hill residents are working to get it removed from the list.
A meeting was held February 19, which saw 70 to 80 people, and a bank account was set up for donations at American Community Bank.
The auditorium has been declared of historical significance, and very early estimates of the cost to refurbish the property are at around $1.5 million.
The Mint Hill Historical Society has commissioned a committee to save Bain auditorium, led by town commissioner Tina Ross.
Ross has spoken to Guy Chamberlain, associate superintendent for auxiliary services at Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, as well as the John LeGrande, principal at Bain Elementary, and says the results are positive.
