Congratulations to Bedco Mobility of Baltimore for their submission of photos from the historic Hosanna Community House in Darlington, Maryland.
The building has an interesting story. It was one of the first schools built for the recently-freed African-Americans in former slave-holding states. By 1907, it was so run down that it was actually condemned for use as a school. Regardless, it was somehow still used as a school for African-American children for another 38 years. It has seen many repairs over the years, and now it is completely restored and functions as a museum, preserving the structure and it’s history for future generations.

An Xpress II Inclined Platform Wheechair Lift has recently been added to the outside stairway to provide ADA-compliant, barrier-free accessibility.

Greenbuild 2014 is being held October 22 & 23 in New Orleans, Louisiana. For the first time, Garaventa Lift will be exhibiting at Greenbuild, exhibiting our compact, efficient accessibility solutions. Greenbuild is a show based on designing better environmental solutions for construction projects. The main focus has always been larger industrial and commercial projects, though they have a small residential pavilion. Garaventa Lift will be presenting our commercial accessibility lifts and LU/LA Elevators.
We sometimes take accessibility for granted. But when it was taken away from a Principal at a school in Queens, New York, it was clear that a solution was needed right away. The solution is a Stair-Trac by Garaventa Lift. It is an innovative product: a portable wheelchair lift.
