Shortly thereafter, an older home, which had been used by the Stone Harbor Elementary School for School Board offices became available. Through an arrangement between the Borough and the School,Board this building became the Museum until May 2017.
We have just obtained a 2,400 sq ft property at 9410 Second Ave for our new location! Our Museum had outgrown our present facility (900 sq ft) and had been seeking an appropriate larger facility to display our 50,000 artifacts, videos and displays. We will open Memorial Day weekend..
