A Brief History

Freeport Community Services simple beginnings back in the early 70's, located in a room above a volunteer's garage. Incorporating as a 501c3 in 1974, FCS has continued to grow to meet the needs of their community. FCS moved to Depot Street in the early 90's and recently completed the restoration of two historic 1800s E.B. Mallet, Jr. houses along with the construction of a large connected building. This beautiful and functional building, known as The Freeport Community Center, now houses many community organizations. You are most welcome to visit!

In 2011, FCS will expand to connect with the 3rd E.B. Mallet, Jr. house on Depot Street (see below) for much-needed office and storage space. The restoration of this 3rd historic building will include "green building" techniques to maximize energy efficiency with solar panels and other deep energy methods - without compromising the inherent beauty or structure of the house.
