Hi everyone. The website for the Century Manor Task Force 2 is now up and running.. It is a site for those interested in saving Century Manor, formely know as East House. It was built by Kivas Tully and is located just behind St. Joseph’s Juravinksy Hospital located at Fennell and West Fifth. I am always happy to accept any suggestions which will help make this site more interesting and informative. We will keep everyone aware of our efforts to save Century Manor.
