Museum expansion is underway

The museum expansion is finally underway!  The first step, which is happening in October, is to elevate the existing building to comply with FEMA requirements.  While work is being done under the building, it is boosted above the planned permanent height. 

The new addition will start taking shape in back of the existing building, and is scheduled to be complete by the end of March 2012.  The last step will be to upgrade our exhibits to feature some new artifacts and better display the many great photos and historical items we are fortunate to have in our collection.
We anticipate reopening the museum in January or February while work continues on the addition.  The critical factor that determines when we can open is having a handicap ramp available to visitors.  Check back for updated information.
