Important News: The New York State Board for Historic Preservation recommended our museum to the State and National Registers of Historical Places. (Once the recommendations are approved by the state historic preservation officer, the properties are listed on the New York State Register of Historic Places and then nominated to the National Register of Historic Places, where they are reviewed and, once approved, entered on the National Register.)
