 "Welcome to our home"

           Hello, my name is Kevin J. Kirchner,

 a licenced building inspector for the city of Vineland, N.J, 

   I have formed a "non-profit " corporation for the purpose of re-building the

                                           "Palace of Depression".  

  When the Palace (re) opens it's doors to the public, it will greet them as a

                               " Living history & Arts center

      along with a 30 x 60 ft structure that will house artifacts from the original Palace as

 well as focusing on our city, & the state of New Jersey. 

         This " handi-cap accessable structure" will be adjacent to a "sculpture park"

 featuring  static displays  of " Depression-era " antiques, collectables, & hard-ware, while

 the history center will house in tribute the uniforms and fashion, & the men and women who

 survived, &, made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our country during this turbulante

 time in our history.

       The Palace reopened, will be a place for the children of all ages  to explore as they

 learn about the arts & crafts and culture, that make our region unique,

 the history & arts center will house a theater and auditorium,meeting rooms, offices, & a

 restaurant & gift shop ( to help defray the cost of the project) parking lot, with total

 wheel-chair accessablity through out. 

       Thank you for taking the time to read this and now please take a moment  or two, to take a tour of our project

in the "image gallery"  and visit the palace, it's past, present , and  future. 

         Sincerely, Kevin J. Kirchner, L & I, Vineland, N.J, 08360
