This summer at the CNY Living History Center, we have been hard at work improving our facilities and grounds.  Of course the summer is always a busy time for us because of the nice weather and our annual events like our exhibit preview party, Civil War weekend, or the Brockway Truck Show.  But this year has been even more active for us with the ambitious projects we set into place this year. We have three major projects that we are working towards completing, our illuminated road sign out front, the repaving of our entire parking lot, and the construction of the Nadge Memorial Garden out back.  The road sign is now installed and has already received some attention from people around town! People will finally have no reason now to say things like, “I had no idea this was here!” Now with that road sign and the tank, you literally can’t miss us! Our parking lot repaving project is also underway with phase one already being complete!  Phase one consisted of tearing up the old pavement and then regraded the lot to redirect the pooling water to make it easy to plow in the winter. The second phase will add another coat of asphalt to our lot and then stripe the parking spaces. With the Brockway Truck Show only weeks away, the second phase won’t start until after the show. The Nadge Memorial Garden is starting to take shape as the remnants from the old storage building that used to be out back our museum removed and the initial plan having been drawn up.  All of these projects are in an effort to always be looking towards the future and to always attempt to improve your experience with us. These projects wouldn’t be possible without the support from our donors, volunteers, and our visitors so thank you and we hope that you will stop by to see the improvements we have been making!

We are now open on Sundays from 1 to 5 until Labor Day, September 2nd so now you have six days to choose from to visit.  Also don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Instagram @CNYLivingHistory!  Come take a walk through history with us!
