Move To Main Street


25 Main Street

Lodge Hall on Church Street

 

Creating a new home for community memories

Four decades after the creation of Wyalusing’s initial museum display, the fund-raising has begun for a permanent home in downtown Wyalusing.

Since 1976, museum exhibits have been located at various times in the town hall, the lower level of the library, and most recently on the grounds of the historic Grovedale Farm, but never in a building owned by the museum association.

Steps to a New Museum

Phase 1: Purchase Building at 25 Main Street - $150,000

Phase 2: Interior Renovations, both buildings (estimated $350,000)
• Handicap accessibility upgrades for the first floor of each building
• HVAC upgrades to each building
• Fire safety upgrades
• Security system
• Interior remodeling and exhibit design for Main Street building.
These renovations will allow us to move into the buildings

Phase 3: Facade Renovations, both buildings - Historic preservation is an important part of our mission. We look forward to caring for these historic structures over the years. Phase 3 of our campaign will be a longer process to plan the restoration of the facades of these two 19th century buildings.

You Can Help!

When you build a log cabin there are different sized logs and different pieces of wood for window frames and doorways. But the chinking between the logs is important too. Creating a new home for the museum is just like that - we will need some big donors, but donations of all sizes are important. We want this to be a full community effort. All donors, whatever their gift level, will be acknowledged in the museum’s newsletter, anonymously if desired. We are working on some creative ideas for acknowledging donors on a recognition wall in the new museum. Pool your money with family members or friends to memorialize a surname or someone you love. Know that we deeply appreciate your support.
