Construction Update

The HVAC and Window Installation project at the MCHS if finally coming to an end. Currently we getting ready to “fire up” the new system and make sure everything is up to par! In addition, the new windows are completed and look great. To compliment the windows, we’ve given the main corridor, rotating display area (former meeting room), library, offices and workroom a new paint job. When you come back to the museum, you won’t recognize the place. At present, because of construction, we are only able to accommodate visitors looking to do research. We are planning to be back up and running at full capacity by the end of January! Check in with us for more information or stay tuned for more updates.
