— The Out Building —

In the 1990's the Museum was bursting the seams. It was determined that an out building should be built to store and display some of the items in the collection. The "building out back" is set up for display and activities. But you have to look closely at the shelves. There are treasures hidden there. The building was built by students of BOCES: Southwest Tech.
