OverviewEdit

As a test for the proposed removal of signs in Adirondack Park,[1] the museum benefited from new signs leading visitors there, as well as to its neighbors, The Hyde Collection and the Charles R. Wood Theater.[2]

FundingEdit

In addition to its regular exhibits, the museum was awarded a $50,000 grant in 2004 to create a portable, educational exhibit that could help educate area students about the local history from the French and Indian War to local development in the 1950s.[3]
