Hanna throws support behind CCHS barn project

NORWICH – The Chenango County Historical Society in Norwich received a tout of support from U.S. Congressman Richard Hanna who visited the museum Wednesday to catch a glimpse of the ongoing Loomis Barn project.

“For a small community, there’s a lot of enthusiasm for this project,” Hanna said, citing continued efforts of volunteers and the more than $300,000 in contributions from individuals and other nonprofits throughout the area. “A lot of people don’t realize what a great museum they have here.”

The Historical Society’s Loomis Barn project officially got underway with a groundbreaking in May. Since then, the grounds of the museum on Rexford Street have become a bustling construction site that, when all is said and done, will be home to the county’s largest agriculture education center.
