help me reserve marysville oldest road

Im not sure exactly what to do, My name is Georgie and I recently came across this wonderful part of marysville history, Nesteled in the midst of a small community is a jewl, the only thing is that it is slowly becoming a victim of deteriation. what i know is that it is supposed to be the oldest road of marysville. I have already gotten a small group of people together who have been working on cleaning it up and trying to make our presence know so that people wont vandalize it. It is a bunch of trails and in the middle of it is a small stage, some corrals they made tables out of stumps and there is a shelf that had been made into an old stump. i heard that the owner of the property now was friends with a lady who ran for gov. and they had a seminar out there for her. my problem is that it is privatly owne we are currently looking into how to get a hold of mr Turk if he is still living, he used to keep the property up himself and was happy to let it be open to the public. I am hoping that you can direct me in the right directions on how we might be able to get some donations for a little lumber to restore the stage area and how one might go about doing this the right way. Its not a huge job right now, a few repairs and some tlc will go far. it would just be a shame for this small jewl to become lost in time.

Mert Turk is the property owner and his wife died last year. I believe his son also lives on the property. Girl Scout camp was there for about 6 years that I know of. He let us use the property for free.

Is that behind rolling greens back behind where Cascade Elementary is? I grew up there, but am now in Arlington. We used to walk back there, it felt like I could have stepped into Anne of Green Gables or something. :)

Try going to the lumber placed and ask if they would be willing to donate some supplies of any sort to help out. Places like home depot I would imagin would help out. I use to work there and they do a lot of work for communities when they can.

Mr. Turk lived on the property in the house to the left when you walk in.There is so much history there. A Senator rode on the road that cut through there in the early 1900's. The Girl Scouts use to camp there every summer. Try contacting them.
