NORWICH – Members of the Chenango County Historical Society are excited about a building project that will feature the re-establishment of a dismantled 19th century barn on the museum’s property at 45 Rexford St.
The organization has been working closely with Norwich city officials and investigating issues surrounding the project in hopes of having the structure erected behind the Chenango County Museum by late summer, 2013.
The barn will host a collection of post Civil War era agricultural equipment ranging from the 1860s to the early stages of the 20th century. According to Allan Estus, director of the Chenango County Historical Society, it would be a great addition to the organization’s growing collection of exhibits and showrooms.
“Our mission is in education and preservation of our heritage ... this certainly fits our mission,” Estus said. “It will renew interest in development of exhibits.”
