YCHC Raising Funds for New Building Project
The Yates County History Center is constructing a new, one-story exhibit and archival storage building on its campus starting this fall. Sugar Creek Construction, a Yates County-based company, is the contractor for the building project. Due to a generous donor, we now need to raise only $150,000 of the total cost of the building project.
The new building will house large collection items in an exhibit area that will be open to the public and feature traditional archival storage space. The building will be climate controlled for historic preservation purposes. Those wishing to donate to the capital campaign for the building project should contact YCHC at (315) 536-7318 for more information. YCHC is a private, non-profit organization established in 1860 for the purpose of preserving Yates County history.
The Yates County History Center has a mission to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of Yates County and operates the L. Caroline Underwood Museum, the Oliver House, and the Scherer Carriage House, which contains the permanent exhibit on the Public Universal Friend. The History Center is open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a suggested donation of $5 for admission. For information, call (315) 536-7318 or email ycghs@yatespast.org.
