Building Plans

Doubling the Size of the Museum

Plans call for the first floor of the hotel to become the museum with three major exhibit rooms, a larger gift shop, and volunteer rooms. Large pocket doors separate two of the exhibit rooms and these can be opened for larger temporary exhibits. The second floor will contain the restored Victorian ballroom for events and rooms for storage, the museum office, and an onsite caretakers living quarters. The basement will contain a workshop for the cleaning and restoration of new museum pieces while the attic contains space that can be finished for future storage needs. The two floors of the house contain over 5,600 square feet of space and as much as 9,000 square feet including the unfinished basement and attic spaces. The current museum building, in comparison, contains 2,500 square feet of space. The current museum building, located on Mill Street in LeRoy, will contain an expanded local history research library, gift shop and a first-floor multipurpose room for local history programming, handicapped accessible research space and special museum events.

This project is financed in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program, the Heritage Areas Programs under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.
